About the festival

The festival ‘’Classic over Volga’’ for the first time took place in Tolyatti in 2008 and since then is a considerable event of every summer. Mission of festival is to popularize classical music, and also expansion of opportunities for creative realization of young musicians. Unique style of "Classic over Volga" -­ performance of symphonic orchestras and vocalists on a summer open-air stage against Zhiguli Hills and Volga River in combination with additional semantic accents in the form of theatrical, graphic and design visualization.

In the first year of carrying out the festival caused at once a great interest of public unusual combination of symphonic orchestra performance with summer breeze, whisper of wave, rustle of trees... The open-air stage located on the bank of Volga, Zhiguli Hills for a while turned into natural scenery, creative inspiration of the musicians who infected the audience with love to a timeless classic - this approach obviously pleased public, always with enthusiasm perceiving innovative decisions in everything.

Organizers of festival led by his author and director Alexey Vozilov go on a difficult way: every year level of festival program raises, also responsibility to the audience grows. It is nice that in response increases audience interest for the festival.

Mission of festival is to open the road to successful career for young musicians, creative self-realization, and the audience­ to open the world of classical music, which not only does not become outdated, but becomes more actual for each of us, surely declaring that – the world has eternal values and real feelings!

Director of the festival, Mr. Alexey Vozilov, says:­"We want the most that the audience from other cities and regions became an integral part of a festival, and that they estimate and fell in love with this unique event. Some experienced judges of classics who with pleasure attend academic concerts and listen to very difficult works (which to unprepared viewer will seem extremely tiresome), with pleasure come on our festival, where of course, sounds more popular, favorite works, classic "hits" if it is so possible to be expressed. But they like special atmosphere which reminds the European festival, and thus­ with own unique face and style"...

For years of holding a festival the great number of famous actors and musical collectives - both Russian, and foreign appeared on its stage. At very intense tour schedule, they find opportunity to arrive in the summer to Tolyatti to give to the audience, to whom trips to Maryinsky Theater are inaccessible, the Vienna opera or La Scala Milan Theater, - join high art and feel heartbeat of eternally live classic...

The Symphony Orchestra of the Ural State Conservatoire Named After M. Mussorgsky


The Symphony Orchestra of the Ural State Conservatoire named after M. Mussorgsky is one of the oldest orchestras of the Urals. The orchestra is made up of the Сonservatoire students (department of orchestral string instruments and department of orchestral wind and percussion instruments).

An outstanding conductor and teacher, People’s Artist of the RSFSR, Professor Mark Paverman was at the origin of the orchestra. At different times the orchestra was conducted by different conductors: Honored Artist of the RSFSR Alexander Fridlender, People’s Artists of the RSFSR Evgeny Kolobov and Wolf Gorelik, Honored Art Worker of Kazakhstan Timur Mynbayev, Honored Art Workers of Russia Alexey Lyudmilin and Boris Osipov, Honored Artists of Russia Vladimir Vishnevskiy, Vladimir Zavadskiy and Alexey Dorkin, the winner of the international competition Enkhe, Ural Philharmonic Orchestra conductor, Professor Vyacheslav Kartashov.

The Student Symphony Orchestra is a regular participant of the Conservatoire concert and creative life. It is rightfully considered to be the image and pride of the university. Throughout its history, the orchestra had the honor to accompany such soloists as People’s Artist of the USSR Vera Bayeva, People’s Artists of Russia Nikolay Golyshev, Natalya Pankova, Shaukat Amirov, Honored Artist of Russia Valery Shkarupa, Honored Artists of the RSFSR Lev Mirchin, Hertz Tsomyk, Sergey Peshkov, and others. Of particular note is a regular fruitful cooperation between the orchestra and the students’ choir (directed by Professor Vladimir Zavadskiy). Together they successfully performed the Mass in B minor (BWV 232) by Johann Sebastian Bach (conducted by Alexey Dorkin) and 9 Beethoven’s symphonies (the Conservatoire concert hall, conducted by Anton Shaburov) on the stage of Sverdlovsk State Academic Philharmonic Society.

The orchestra is not only a good practice for novice musicians. It has also become a practical base for the students who study orchestra and chorus conducting, composition, and musical sound-producing.

The brightest page of the orchestra life is associated with its conductor, the winner of All-Russian and international conducting competitions Anton Shaburov. Active and fruitful work brought positive results, such as increasing a number of performances and their complexity, and enhancing performances quality. These results made it possible to invite other Russian and foreign conductors (from Germany, Luxembourg, and the USA). Established international contacts allowed the orchestra to reach a new level. In 2015 the Symphony Orchestra together with Berlin Youth Symphony Orchestra gave two concerts in Germany. After the event the orchestra was invited to the Young Euro Classic 2016 festival in Berlin where it faced its highest triumph.

Since 2017 the orchestra has been headed by a Conservatoire graduate and teacher Andrey Kolyasnikov.

Art Project “TenorS of the XXI Century”


The art project “The TenorS of the XXI century” was created in 2006. Its members are experienced and eminent performers Alexander Bogdanov, Alexander Zakharov, Alexander Ostrovskiy, Maxim Paster, Sergey Pisarev, Alexander Skvarko, Mikhail Urusov, Eduard Semenov, and Georgy Faradzhev. The project organizer, producer and art director is Dmitry Sibirtsev. Before gathering together the tenors had already performed at the world’s most prestigious concert venues, such as La Scala (Milano) and Teatro di San Carlo (Napoli), Covent Garden (London) and Teatro Communale di Bologna, Semperoper (Dresden) and Teatro Lirico di Cagliari, Bolshoi Theatre of Russia (Moscow) and National Opera of Ukraine (Kiev), GewandHaus (Leipzig) and Palau de les Arts (Valencia), Tchaikovsky Concert Hall (Moscow) and Carnegie Hall (New York), and others.

The art project “The TenorS of the XXI century” was granted the National Heritage Award (2007) and Moscow Award in the field of literature and art (2013) for successful concert and educational activity. The soloists of the project Maxim Paster, Alexander Bogdanov, Mikhail Urusov and Dmitry Sibirtsev became prizewinners of Irina Arkhipova’s Foundation Award. Mikhail Urusov got a title of Honoured Artist of Russia while Alexander Zakharov got a title of Honoured Artist of Ingushetia. All the soloists of the project are the winners of many different vocal competitions.

Although the singers continue their solo career, they have been getting together and giving over 150 concerts a year for more than 10 years. During its existence, “The TenorS of the XXI century” have presented more than 50 different programs to the audience, where each of the tenors indispensably sings several solo compositions. At the same time, the audience is always looking forward to the moment when all the soloists appear on the stage together. Each of the singers is an owner of a unique timbre, original performing style and dramatic temperament. It gives the audience opportunity to enjoy, empathize, compare and appraise!

At Music and Arts Festival Tremolo the art project “The TenorS of the XXI century” will present the program called A Tribute to Pavarotti. The repertoire of the concert includes arias from operas in which Luciano Pavarotti shone, as well as Neapolitan songs and works of modern Italian composer Romano Musumarra, who wrote several remarkable melodies specially for Pavarotti. One of the main songs of the program, of course, is famous “Caruso” written by Lucio Dalla. In the program A Tribute to Pavarotti the soloists of the project never try to copy Luciano Pavarotti’s manner of singing, but simply pay tribute to this amazing performer and person.
