Press release on the Russian Muses for the World international music project in Cyprus
On November 3−5, the Russian Muses for the World international music project organised concerts in Cyprus on the occasion of Russia’s National Unity Day. This project of the Muses for the World Foundation for promoting classical music (President and General Producer Boris Rubin) was supported by the Russian Embassy and the Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Cyprus.
Concerts by People’s Artist of Russia Vladimir Ovchinnikov, an outstanding Russian piano player and a professor at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory, were held in Nicosia, Larnaka and Pafos, which is the 2017 European Capital of Culture.
The concerts aroused a lively interest of the local audiences, which appreciated the opportunity to gain an insight into Russian traditions, culture and the arts.
The Russian Muses for the World international music project was launched in 1997 together with the Russian Culture Ministry and Foreign Ministry and has held over 100 concerts in 23 countries. The project is designed to promote cultural cooperation and support Russia’s image as a country of high achievements in culture and the arts.
Apart from prominent musicians, young talented performers who have not yet won public appreciation also took part in this project.
