Dear friends, by purchasing tickets, you agree to сomply with our rules for concertgoers.

How did our great-grandmothers celebrate Christmas? What did they serve for dinner? What songs did they sing, what music did they listen to? Christmas traditions of the prerevolutionary Russia are revived in our neogothic cathedral. The music of the 1900-s is accompanied by extracts of Ivan Shmelyov’s book Christmas in Moscow and stylish old postcards. The program features P. Tchaikovsky, N. Rimsky-Korsakov, F. Liszt, popular Christmas tunes of the early 20th century.
