Unipro PJSC and Orpheus Radio present:
The International Music Festival "Energy of Discoveries"

We create new music collections, where innovative and classical styles live in harmony. Real music does not become outdated, it requires a new vision. This international forum keeps up with the times: genre boundaries are erased here, progressive trends do not contradict classical music and digital technologies are subject to the strictest musical canons.

"Energy of Discoveries" Festival’s program includes the world premieres of newly discovered compositions. The event is a pilot platform for new young performers and musical groups with a fresh, modern look at our history. In fact, it is the Russian musical heritage addressed to the future.


The world of Russian music is richer than we can imagine. A large number of little-known musical rarities are stored in archives, repositories and private collections. Unipro PJSC and Orpheus Radio joint unique project "Russian Composers’ Heritage Revival" was launched in 2014 and is aimed at restoring, preserving and popularizing the lost musical works, valuable books and sheet music.

Its main task is to bring back to life unfairly forgotten music and to make the names of those composers, whose wonderful works have been lost in history, known to the public. The Orpheus Radio music archive became invaluable "treasure chest'' for researchers. They managed to revive and perform the music of Anton Arensky, Nikolai Golovanov, Alexander Mosolov.

In 2020, the "Russian Composers’ Heritage Revival" project became an integral part of the International Music Festival "Energy of Discoveries".
