Did Fryderyk Chopin's music sound in the Russian manor? Certainly: The Polish composer's "Mazurkas", "Preludes", and "Nocturnes" were heard not only in French salons, but also in the homesteads of the Russian nobility of the XIX century. One of the reasons for this is the characteristic Slavic tone of Chopin's music combined with melachnolia, nostalgia and inescapable melodism. Another hero of the evening is Antonin Dvorak, perhaps literally the most Slavic European of the XIX century. However, Dvorak's music was more often listened to on the big stage than in the circle of home guests.

The hall in Kuskovo can reveal both sides of the existence of music in Russia of the XIX century at once: both manor and concert. Together with the artists of the Mosconcert and the renowned pianist Basinia Shulman, listeners will be able to immerse themselves in the historical atmosphere to the sounds of a charming Waltz from the Serenade for Strings and romantic Chopin melodies from the Piano Concerto.
