Music festival

The Piano Festival "Clavis" unlocks all piano lids and opens the doors for small to professional!
Clavis means "key", "button", "letter" or "note" ... the little clavis "c" we know as the first note, clavis "G" serves as the treble clef.
The main theme of the festival is the unification of all keyboard instruments, the way on from the beginning, from the source of the art of piano to today's world of piano. This is a connection between the traditions of the Russian pianoforte school with the piano art of Europe, wherein organ and harpsichord music are the basis of all pianistic knowledge.
Concerts, seminars, masterclasses of Clavichord, harpsichord, piano and organ will be offered during the three-day festival. The center of the project is the international piano competition for children and young people.
Organizers of the festival make every effort to make the piano art a bit closer and more tangible for all.
The festival will take place in two places twice a year. In the spring in beautiful Bavaria (Germany) and in the autumn in fantastic St. Petersburg (Russian Federation).
The Piano Festival "Clavis Bavaria 2017" will take place from 31st of March to the 2nd of April 2017.

The Piano Festival "Clavis St. Petersburg 2017" will take place from the 1st to the 3rd of November in St. Petersburg, in Shostakovich School No. 235.
All piano lovers, pianists, teachers and students are cordially invited to these two great events!
