President of the Society
«I know how important it is to support young musicians, the support that I received once helped me and determined my life path in the music world.

At first
A few words about the Society
One musician said: "Mozart is not a composer, it is a way of looking at the world, it is filling space."
Sometimes the space that surrounds us is full of aggression and ignorance, and we strive for Mozart's music, like no other, bright, sublime spiritual, to sound as often as possible, filling the space with itself.
The Society Mozart was created to popularize the work of the great composer.

The members of the Society are not only well-known professional musicians and musicologists (such as A. G. Bakhchiev, E. G. Sorokina, E. I. Chigareva), but also representatives of many other professions, people of all ages, regardless of their experience and education.
For more than 30 years of its existence, the Society has received quite wide recognition not only in Russia. It has established close creative contacts with similar societies in Austria, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Switzerland and other countries. Since 1994, OLMM has been a full member of the world organization "MOZARTEUM" (headquarters in Mozart's homeland in Salzburg, Austria).

In the 90s, on the initiative of the President of the Society, G. A. Pisarenko, a regional branch of the "Society of Mozart" was established in Penza.

This extremely complex and long-term work was highly appreciated by the Russian and foreign musical community, as well as by the Austrian Embassy in Moscow.

Thanks to the sponsorship organized by the Society, a number of young talented performers got the opportunity to participate in international competitions, where they achieved high recognition. For example: Lyubov Petrova, having won two vocal competitions, is currently singing under contract at the Metropolitan Opera in New York; singer Maria Krikorova won the second prize at the Bellini Competition in Italy; singer Anastasia Bakastova became the winner of the XII International P. I. Competition.

Having won the XIII competition named after him.Tchaikovsky, Albina Shagimuratova now sings in leading theaters in Europe and America.
Over the past 30 years, the Moscow Society has developed particularly close relations with the similar society of the city of Manheim (Germany), which, in particular, is expressed in the constant exchange of creative delegations. Representatives of the Moscow Society annually attend the winter music Festival in Salzburg, dedicated to Mozart's birthday.
