About Trans-Siberian Art Festival

The Trans-Siberian Art Festival, founded in 2014 by Artistic Director Vadim Repin in his hometown Novosibirsk, shares its values with TŌN and Leon Botstein: to build cultural, social and geographical bridges across the continents by means of the arts and music education. Each year, the Festival commissions a new work, one of which is Lera Auerbach’s deeply moving violin concerto De profundis, which on this occasion will receive its U.S. premiere. The Trans-Siberian Art Festival has gradually spread out all over Russia to Krasnoyarsk, Omsk, Tyumen, Tobolsk, Samara, St Petersburg, Moscow and beyond its boundaries to Japan, Israel, Belgium and California. The collaboration with TŌN marks a particularly memorable moment in that a Festival project will be presented at Carnegie Hall for the first time.
