Vivacello is the only festival in our country dedicated to cello music. It was established in 2008 upon an initiative of the famous cellist Boris Andrianov with support of Iveta and Tamaz Manasherov’s cultural and charity fund U-Art: You and Art. Since then every autum Moscow has been hosting spectacular events related to the cello: concerts of chamber and symphonic music, installations, cross-overs, theatrical productions, presentations. Every year VIVACELLO festival offers the audience the opportunity to enjoy world premieres.

The festival is unique because it features the cello in completely different genres: it is performed in combination with a jazz band and guitar, orchestra and video art, or in theatrical productions. VIVACELLO fully represents the instrument’s manysidedness, which the great Mstislav Rostropoich always accentuated and proved.

Since 2019, VIVACELLO has been supported by Unipro, as the General partner of the festival.

The nearest Vivacello festival will be held from 6 to 18 November 2020.
