— Russian-German MusicAcademy with Valery Gergiev

The russian-german music academy brings together highly talented students of music from leading music schools in russia and germany. The project, which was established under the patronage of star conductor valery gergiev, combines support for exceptional young musicians with the promotion of mutual understanding between russians and germans – a long-standing goal of gazprom germania’s sponsorshop activities.


GAZPROM Germania has supported the unique project since 2014 to promote the encounter and joint work of international students and young professional musicians. Conducted by Valery Gergiev, the orchestra performs annually at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg and in Berlin. In addition to classical works by European composers, the ensemble also presents premieres of contemporary compositions.


On 15 December 2019, the orchestra will perform under the direction of Valery Gergiev and with Russia’s exceptional pianist Denis Matsuev at the Berlin Concert Hall. The concert, in which works by Sergei Rachmaninoff and Igor Stravinsky will be interpreted, is the culmination of the Russian Seasons Cultural Year 2019 initiative organised by the Russian Government and the Russian Ministry of Culture.
