But because the musicians hurried to the capital. S. Belza congratulated the people of Tver with such a successful beginning of the festival. Has been successful the whole festival in General. It is gratifying that its audience figures was wide. At the concert dedicated to the works of the great composer Georgy Sviridov, there were many young, and not only from Tver.
