Dear friends, by purchasing tickets, you agree to сomply with our rules for concertgoers.
A New Year’s Eve party may give us not only joy but also health problems. To avoid that, we should partly replace normal food with a cultural experience. A French organ recital on the New Year’s Eve is certainly a perfect delicacy. The programme of the European virtuoso includes the best Christmas music and a surprise bonus: a merry improvisation on a Russian theme. Which one? This is kept secret for the time being.
