The story of the Moscow Chamber Orchestra Musica Viva dates back to 1978, when violinist and conductor Viktor Kornachev founded a musical ensemble of nine young graduates of Moscow’s music academies. Ten years later, the ensemble had grown into a fully fledged orchestra. Under current director Alexander Rudin – who also gave the group its name Musica Viva – Latin for “living music” – it has become a formidable musical ensemble and is today ranked as one of Russia’s finest orchestras. The orchestra is adept in multiple performance practices, always aiming to get as close as possible to the style the composer intended. Its repertoire covers various genres and it devotes particular attention to undeservedly forgotten masterpieces, while at the same time performing the music of contemporary composers. Rudin, who will also be conducting the orchestra at the home of the Slovenian Philharmonic, alternates between the cello and the viola da gamba in his concert appearances, playing music of the Romantic era in the traditional way and adopting historically informed performance practice for the music of the Baroque and Classical eras.
