April 3 – Manege hosted the second concert of the Open Orchestra Project. Open Orchestra is a joint project between Manege and Tavrichesky Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mikhail Golikov. The audience could immerse themselves into the musical performance under minimal lighting and at a minimal distance from the musicians. Our guests got a unique chance to cross the line between a spectator and a participant. The seats were placed practically within the orchestra.
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor (Ivan Kachkin, a soloist and rising star, 12 years old)
Valery Gavrilin – the ballet Anyuta (fragments)
Isaac Schwatz - Nakanune (The Day Before)
Sergey Rachmaninov - Symphony No.2 (fragments)
