Russian Music in China

 

 

 

 

On May 23, 2019 a piano concert took place in Moscow Institute of Arts on the basis of Weinan Normal University (Weinan, China).The audience listened to a set of twelve short character pieces for solo piano “The Seasons” by Tchaikovsky, Russian poetry. The music was illustrated by the most famous Russian paintings. The main goal of the concert was to familiarize Chinese students with Russian music, poetry and painting, and “The Seasons”, since the set has a poetic epigraph to every piece, was a perfect choice. This project was developed by MPGU teachers M. Jhavoronkova and V. Kirienko. The concert was a success: after the concert Heads of Moscow Institute of Arts on the basis of Weinan Normal University expressed gratitude for Russian contribution to Chinese students’ cultural development.
