Pianissimo Festival. Dmitry Shishkin
The House of Culture "GES-2" in partnership with the Pianissimo Festival presents a program of summer concerts of piano music. The festival is attended by leading young performers from Russia and abroad.
The main idea of the Pianissimo Festival is to introduce listeners to the younger generation of musicians in new spaces for academic music. Among the halls where the festival participants played are the State Hermitage Museum, the St. Petersburg Manege and the ballroom of the Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Since 2022, Pianissimo has also been held in Moscow, at the GES-2 House of Culture.
