EARLYMUSIC International festival is an annual showcase of medieval, Renaissance, baroque and early classical music in its authentic performance. It builds cultural links between Russia and European countries creating a common cultural space. The festival brings back to life the court music of the XVIIIth century, the music of Russian country estates, and connects Russia, Europe, Japan, China, Turkey, Korea, and other countries from all over the world through its musical heritage and traditions. The festival was founded in 1998 and since then has taken place annually in the best concert halls, palaces, and mansions of Saint Petersburg and its suburbs. Selected concerts are toured to Moscow and other Russian cities.
