    MOSCOW, March 8 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow's Tretyakov Gallery opens a festival of chamber music called "Dedication." The organizers of the festival that includes painting and sculpture from the Tretyakov Gallery and documentary exhibitions from the archives of the House-Museum of composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky in Klin (Moscow region) are the Musica Viva academic chamber orchestra, the Tretyakov Gallery and the Regional public fund "Music Collections." The festival highlights one of the brightest and most fruitful periods in the history of Russian and world art called "Sturm und Drang" (1790-1830). This time is connected with young Schiller and Goete's poetry, the music by Mozart, Beethoven and Heidn. In Russia, the spirit of Sturm und Drang turned out to be close to Zhukovsky and partly Pushkin, Karamzin and Glinka.

    The ten concerts of the festival will draw a panorama of the variegated time of revolution full of events, that heralded the replacement of classicist art with romanticism's aesthetics.

    Worldwide known musicians and rising stars will add their touches to this grandiose canvas: the Musica Viva orchestra head, well known cellist Alexander Rudin, Teleman-consort ensemble, etc.

    Well known pianist Aleksei Lyubimov will play an ancient piano and clavecin.

    The festival also highlights Luigi Boccerini and others.
