Moscow x 2

I just found that Angela Gheorghiu performed twice in Moscow. The concert announced on the official site and another one, one day before, on September 12th.
It was an anniversary concert for Mr Vladimir Spivakov. - the 65th jubilee concert, that took place on September 12th, in Svetlanov Hall, at Moscow International Performing Arts Center. The program featured symphonic and opera masterpieces of the XVIII – XX centuries performed by outstanding artists: pianists Denis Matsuev, Helene Mercier, Louis Lortie, vocalists Hibla Gerzmava and Angela Gheorghiu.

Mr Spivakov is a leading Russian conductor and violinist best known for his work with the Moscow Virtuosi chamber orchestra.
At the age of 13, Spivakov was awarded the first prize at the major conductor contest in Moscow. He studied at the Moscow Conservatory under Yuri Yankelevich and debuted with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1979. The same year he established the Moscow Virtuosi chamber orchestra. In 1984, Leonard Bernstein presented his conductor's baton to Spivakov. In 1989 he emigrated to Spain. Spivakov was named the People's Artist of the USSR in 1991. Three years later, he established the Vladimir Spivakov International Charity Foundation to help Russian orphans. In 2000 he was awarded the L├ęgion d'honneur for his work as an artistic director of the Colmar International Festival, for which he has worked since 1989.
Spivakov is also considered one of the foremost violinists of his generation, having studied with Yuri Yankelevich at the Moscow Conservatory. He was a prizewinner at several competitions in Moscow, Paris, Genoa, and Montreal.
He currently serves as the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the National Philharmonic of Russia.
As for the moment there's no information on the internet regarding the concert on September 13th. I only found one picture. I guess it was taken by Mr Anatoly Korshunov as I found it on his blog.
