Aspect Chamber Music Series was established to introduce and promote a novel concert format, ‘Music in Context’, which gives our audiences an opportunity to discover new aspects of music.

From the founder

Irina office2.jpg

The impulse to create this series came from the musicians I was fortunate enough to encounter – musicians who were not only excellent artists, but true intellectuals. Their profound knowledge of every aspect of the music they perform has significantly deepened my own perception of it.

The concept of ‘Music in Context’ seemed perfectly harmonious: musicians who are willing to share their skills, vision and knowledge are given a forum to do so; members of the audience, eager to nurture their minds and souls, are given an opportunity to experience music in a particular artistic context and to hear the insights of those intimately familiar with it.

Our concept is continuously evolving. Whether we inquire into the composer’s mindset at the time of the music’s creation or investigate the mysteries of his or her creative process; whether we delve into the history of the music and into the spirit of its time or explore the literary, philosophical or historical influences on the music, we always endeavor to set the context for each musical piece. We strive to enable the audience to decipher the meaning of the music, and to find an individual connection with it.

Join us, and become a part of this unique and exhilarating experience…

It’s more than a concert...
