On 12 January 2024, the soloist of the Moscow State Academic Philharmonic, laureate of the 15th International Competition named after Tchaikovsky, Dmitry Masleev performed in the Armoury Chamber.

Although the concert was postponed due to the illness of the performer, not a single ticket was returned. The admirers of the musician supported him by emails with sincere wishes of a speedy recovery.

In her welcoming speech, Elena Milovzorova, Head of the Publishing and Special Programs Department of the Moscow Kremlin Museums, said: “We are very delighted that a new cycle ‘Musical Meetings in the Kremlin’ has gained the attention of our regular visitors – music lovers. No less pleasant is that this concert “New Year Mood”, shifted from the past December will take place today, practically on the eve of the old style new year, thus continuing the magic of this feast. Let us thank all our visitors who showed understanding to the postponement of the concert and waited for it with words of gratitude.

This year we are planning to hold three more events of the cycle – “Spring Dreams”, “Easter Joy” and again “New Year Mood”, as well as the concerts of our regular autumn festival “Ambassadorial Gifts” that is to celebrate its tenth anniversary. We will be happy to see you all at our musical programmes in the Moscow Kremlin Museums.” 

On the Old New Year’s Eve, in the fairy interiors of the Armoury Chamber, the guests listened to the best pieces and suites for the piano, created by national and foreign composers of the Romantic era and performed by Dmitry Masleev. Among them was the Adagio from the ballet “Spartacus” by Aram Khachaturian, Prelude sol minor opus 23, the piece “Fragments”, polka and études by Sergey Raсhmaninoff, Hopak from the comic opera “Sorochintsy Fair” by Modest Mussorgsky, “Dolls Dances” by Dmitry Shostakovich, pieces “Morning Mood” and “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from the piano suite by Edvard Grieg and others.
