On November 2, 2009 the Viennese Rarities concert took place involving the Austrian baritone Wolfgang Holzmair and the famous Russian Rachmaninov Trio – Victor Yampolsky (piano), Mikhail Tsinman (violin) and Natalya Savinova (cello).
“The musicians from various countries appear on the Small Hall’s stage today making the audience aware that Russia is a rightful member of the global community,” pianist Victor Yampolsky expressed his opinion. “It is well known that our country has very high standards of music education but, unfortunately, our musicians have long been isolated from the rest of the world. Luckily, we have an opportunity now to cooperate with foreign performers within the same project and to demonstrate different musical traditions on the same stage”.
