Artistic director Yuri Bashmet
Dear friends and colleagues,
I am very happy and proud that today, under my direction, a number of children's and youth education projects do prosper.
I would like to congratulate all the participants of the Orchestras and Academies and wish all the young musicians artistic growth and continued success in the profession, as well as in all your life.
You all live in different cities and countries, and your meeting, your communication with each other and with wonderful teachers and soloists will give you invaluable experience, which, I hope, will be an important milestone in the life of every participant. It has been my long dream – the unity of musicians.
I wish you success, and I am sure that the time spent in rehearsals, classes, and concerts will be long remembered as an amazing experience and opportunity.
Maestro Yuri Bashmet
