The "small" ensemble of MSSO soloists with rich concert practice and an original approach to choosing a repertoire is a spectacular artistic phenomenon in the musical life of Moscow. There is no short timing for them - the musicians admirably cope with both the old Baroque repertoire and ultra-difficult opuses of 20th century composers. Performing in different ensembles, the artists discover for themselves and listeners the unexplored pages of chamber works by great composers, each time presenting themselves in a new role to the audience.

The repertoire of the second concert included chamber compositions by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Camille Saint-Saëns and Carl Nielsen. Each of these composers represented his own, highly distinctive musical national tradition. The images of Russian life and nature are reflected in the “Russian village picture” for the piano “Dumka” and in the Tchaikovsky’s First String Quartet. The music of “Caprice sur des airs danois et russes“ for flute, oboe, clarinet and piano by C. Saint-Saëns, and of the Quintet for wind instruments by C. Nielsen is also inspired with a contemplative mood.
