On 9 November 2009, the last concert of the “Shnitke and his Contemporaries” Musical Festival was performed at the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire.

The concert was timed to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the People’s Artist of Russia Boris Tevlin’s teaching career. The programme included music by the present-day composers, such as Alfred Shnitke, Rodion Schedrin, Vissarion Shebalin, Astor Piazzola, and Andrew Lloyd Weber.

The Sveshnikov State Academic Russian Choir and the Chamber Choir of the Moscow Conservatoire sang in the first and second parts of the concert respectively.  Boris Tevlin leads both choirs.

Among the pieces performed by the Sveshnikov Choir were compositions “We Hymn Thee” and “It is Truly Meet” composed by Archbishop Hilarion (Alfeyev).
