The International Piano-Duo Festival, organized by Vyacheslav Gryaznov and the Sverdlovsk Philharmonic, was held in Yekaterinburg. The Festival proved to be an outstanding event in the musical life of the city. Its uniqueness appeared in its new and unusual formats. The pianists played not only 4-hands and two pianos but also 8-hands and even 16-hands; they also played with choir and percussion; and with symphony orchestra. They played both serious pieces and musical jokes; they changed partners. Among the most notable premieres of the Festival were Sviridov’s Snow-Storm (Musical Illustrations to A. Pushkin’s Story) in a transcription for two pianos, choir and percussion, and Variations on the theme of Kalinka by V. Gryaznov for 2 pianos with full orchestra.
