“Interesting free concerts”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

I've recently discovered there are frequent free concerts in Rakhaminov's Hall and in the Small Hall of the Conservatory, offering a great chance to attend classical music events that are somewhat less mainstream. The schedule is on the website. I attended a well-curated selection of pieces by Moscow composers from the 1960s and a gala by young award-winning violinists supported by a top-quality in-house chamber orchestra. Also, there was an intriguing concert of modern classical composers, also free of charge.

“Best place for classical music enjoyment”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Almost finished renovation of the wonderful concert hall. there are 2 main hall - called big and small which represents their capacity of seats. Big hall has a best acoustics in all Moscow, with superb variation of concerts - classical, performed by Russian and top-world performers, tango and solo. considering tickets - parterre is good, might be price, parterre in the end of hall, on right and left has airconditioning, so watch out if you are not well. good places on first balcony on the left - good view on piano and organ concerts and nice acoustics.

“Center of Russian musical culture”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

My wife and I regularly attend concerts at the Moscow Conservatory. Having been in Moscow for 14-plus years, visits there are a regular feature of our cultural life and one of the reasons we stay here. The concerts are affordable and consistently of extremely high caibre. Just approaching the building, you are are often greeted by a symphony of voices and instrumentalists, the sounds coming from the open windows as prospective concert musicians rehearse. Delightful!
