CONCERTS

 

 



Saint-Petersburg Philharmonia

Saint-Petersburg Philharmonia is a music society located in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and is the name of the building where it is housed. Saint-Petersburg Philharmonia was established in 1802. The Bolshoi Zal (meaning the Grand Hall) has a capacity of 1500 seats. It is one of the best known music halls in Russia. The hall's acoustics are judged by some not to be the best in town. The society now hosts two world-famous symphony orchestras: Saint-Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and Saint-Petersburg Academic Symphony Orchestra.
 



Music Hall

This theatre is most interesting for the festivals that it hosts occasionally, although it's most often hit or miss in terms of quality. Also, perhaps it's the only place in St. Petesburg where you can see butoh dance and the famous Russian. Derevo dance theatre company performs here. The theatre also has its own repertoire. There are three areas: the main hall, comedy-hall, and cafe "Velvet".



Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory


The conservatory was founded in 1862 by the Russian pianist and composer Anton Rubinstein. On his resignation in 1867, he was succeeded by Nikolai Zaremba. Rimsky-Korsakov joined the faculty in 1871 and the conservatory has borne his name since 1944. In 1887, Rubinstein returned to the Conservatory with the goal of improving overall standards. He removed inferior students, fired and demoted many professors, made entrance and examination requirements more stringent, and revised the curriculum. In 1891, he resigned again over the Imperial demand of racial quotas.

The current building was erected in the 1890s on the site of the old Bolshoi Theatre of Saint-Petersburg and still preserves the grand staircase and landing from that historic theatre. As the city changed its name in the 20th century, the conservatory was duly renamed Petrograd Conservatory and Leningrad Conservatory.

Today, it is a renowned Russian composition school whose graduates have included such notable composers as Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Sergei Prokofiev, Dmitri Shostakovich, Artur Kapp, and Rudolf Tobias. The youngest musician ever admitted to the Conservatory was five-year old violinist Clara Rockmore, who later became one of the world's foremost theremin players. During the 1960s, Shostakovich taught at the conservatory, which brought it additional fame. Amongst his pupils were German Okunev and Boris Tishchenko.



Oktiabrsky Concert Hall.

It is the largest concert hall in the city, so all the concerts of popular Russian and world stars are taking part here. Meanwhile the building needs redecoration and acoustic is bad, even worse. Concerts begin at 19.00. Sometimes balet.
 



Ice Palace

Ice Palace is an arena in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. It was built for the 2000 IIHF World Championship and opened in 1999. It holds 12,300 people. Ice Palace is primarily used for ice hockey and is the home arena for SKA Saint-Petersburg. It hosted the IIHF European Champions Cup in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. It is also used for concerts, exhibitions and as a skating rink. Sting performed during his Symphonicities Tour on September 13, 2010, along with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
