The opening of the new concert hall of the Moscow Philharmonic, named after P. I. Tchaikovsky, was timed to the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth. On October 12, 1940, the USSR State Symphony Orchestra conducted by Alexander Gauk and Konstantin Ivanov performed the Sixth Symphony, Francesca da Rimini, 1st part of the First Piano Concerto, arias from operas and romances.
One of the largest concert halls in Moscow - the Concert Hall named after Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky from the beginning of the twenty-first century, the hall began to position itself as the main concert venue of the Moscow Philharmonic Society. The hall hosts many concerts (about 300 per year) and is visited by several hundreds of thousands of city residents and its guests. The Moscow Philharmonic Society holds in the hall a whole palette of concerts and festivals, which every year becomes more and more diverse. Festivals such as: “Russian Winter”, “Guitar Virtuosos”, “Nine Centuries of Organ” are held here. Music cycles are also held here: “Opera Masterpieces”, “Great Oratorioes”, “European Virtuosos in Moscow” and “Stars of the World Opera in Moscow”. Such events of concert life largely determine the creative image of Moscow. Tchaikovsky Hall is constantly expanding its activities in respect of young listeners. Here, along with the traditional subscriptions, new cycles and forms of work with young people, including interactive ones, have appeared.
