Crescendo music festival (the art Director of which is Denis Matsuev) has received wide national and international recognition, and become the pride of Russian music culture and the brand symbolizing the highest Russian modern performing art achievements. It is a unique annual forum of the best representatives of the younger generation Russian musicians. The festival's main goal is to present young Russian musicians to the public, to demonstrate the intergenerational continuity and the vitality of the Russian classical performing school; hence, the main slogan of the festival is “The new generation of the Russian performing school”.

The idea of organizing the young performer festival was put forward by the famous Russian producer, honored artist of Russia, Professor David Smelyansky. He invited pianist Denis Matsuev, the winner of the XI International Tchaikovsky competition, who became the co-author of the project, to cooperate.

The festival was first held in 2005, and received a permanent “residence permit” in Sochi in 2012.

Crescendo Music Festival participants are laureates and winners of prestigious international music competitions, regularly and successfully performing in the finest concert halls around the world. They give concerts in the best halls of the country and willingly share their talent and skills with the younger generation at lectures and during master classes.

On July 26, the Festival will be held with the participation of the Sochi Symphony orchestra, led by the conductor, winner of multiple competitions and winner of several state prizes – Anton Lubchenko. In addition to Maestro Denis Matsuev, the other performers in the concert who have already won the love of the public will be the winner of multiple national and international competitions, winner of P. I. Tchaikovsky International Competition 2015 Second Prize Alexander Ramm (cello) and laureate of multiple Russian national and international competitions Haik Kazazyan (violin). Also on that day, the stage of the Winter theater will host a debutant – the winner of the Astana Piano Passion 2019 Competition, Peter Akulov (piano). The program will feature great works by Rachmaninoff, Mendelssohn and Saint-Saens.

On July 27, the festival of classical instrumental art will be completed by the Chamber music evening. During the evening, the participants of the Festival will demonstrate their skills, performing only works by Tchaikovsky. There will be The Seasons, performed solo by Denis Matsuev, and the apotheosis of the program will be a fascinating trio “In Memory of the great artist”, which the Maestro will perform together with Alexander Ramm and Haik Kazazyan.
