Rostislav Krimer, artistic director of the Yuri Bashmet festival:
We are trying to show the quality things that are guidelines throughout the whole year between the festivals of Bashmet.

It is very important that the public becomes younger. Today we have an average age at the festival from 30 to 45 years. And this is a huge achievement during the 12 years.
