As concert halls, museums, galleries, theaters, and movie theaters close their doors in Moscow until April 10 (or longer), a few are moving to online or virtual tour formats. Zaryadye Concert Hall is marking it’s first “day of silence” by not being silent at all. The hall will livestream “The Seasons” tonight at 7 p.m. Moscow time on five different platforms.

The program is a “duet” of pianist and ArsLonga festival artistic director Ivan Rudin and Daria Moroz, a renowned film and theater actor. Rudin will perform the cycle “The Seasons” by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Moroz will recite verse by Alexander Pushkin, Afanasy Fet and Vasily Zhukovsky as well as prose by Boris Pasternak, Mikhail Zoshchenko, and others.

Olga Zhukova, the general director of Zaryadye Concert Hall, said that “in these difficult situations music and art can help people keep their spirits up.”
