About the festival

Public Joint Stock Company (PJSC) UNIPRO and Radio Orpheus present:
First International Music Festival
«Energy of Discoveries»

We create new musical collections in which classical and innovative styles co-exist in full harmony. True music does not become obsolete, it just requires new interpretation. This forum keeps up with the times - here the genre boundaries are blurred, progressive trends do not come into conflict with academic solidity, and digital technologies obey the strictest musical canons.

The Festival «Energy of Discoveries» includes world premieres of rediscovered pieces of music, being an experimental site for discovery of new performers and ensembles. It reflects a bright, modern look at our past; it is Russian musical heritage open to the future.


The world of Russian music is much richer than we can imagine. There is a huge number of musical rarities in archives, storages and private collections. The unique project «Russian Composers’ Heritage Revival», aimed at restoration, preservation and popularization of lost musical pieces, valuable books and scores, was launched in 2014.

Its main task is to revive undeservingly forgotten music, to present to new audiences the authors whose amazing works were lost in history. The musical archive of Radio Orpheus has been used as the basis for research work. Since the time of the project launch the music by Anton Arensky, Nikolai Golovanov and Alexander Mossolov has been performed and found its modern listeners. From 2020 the project «Russian Composers’ Heritage Revival» changes its format and becomes the International Musical Festival “Energy of Discoveries»..
