THE VI INTERNATIONAL VIRTUOSI OF THE FLUTE FESTIVAL

From 17 to 21 March 2022, for the sixth time the Mariinsky Theatre will be hosting the international festival Virtuosi of the Flute, dedicated to the art of performing this instrument. At the Concert Hall and the Rachmaninoff Hall there will be performances of solo flute, as well as accompanied by the piano and in ensembles with other instruments and together with a full orchestra. The festival programme includes music ranging from the Renaissance to the present day, with several premieres planned. The festival is united under the umbrella of “Teacher and Student” – many of the participants have studied under each other, they themselves now passing on their skills to subsequent generations, and at the festival they will be appearing onstage together.

At the Concert Hall there will be opening and closing concerts for the festival (17 and 21 March respectively, with the Mariinsky Orchestra), as well as an evening of chamber ensembles with the flute (19 March). There are to be two festival concerts at the Rachmaninoff Hall. The evening of 18 March will be dedicated to Alexandra Vavilina-Mravinskaya, a legendary flautist who for many years performed in the orchestra of Yevgeny Mravinsky. Appearing onstage will be her students from over the years. On 19 March, a younger audience and their parents may look forward to the concert The Flute of the King featuring music by the great flautist Johann Joachim Quantz and his royal pupil Frederick II, the Great, King of Prussia, alongside an engaging narrative about them.
