About the project

The project «Living Traditions. Vladimir Horn Players» is aimed at popularizing the traditions of the primordially Russian musical instrument — the horn — and the culture of horn music, which had deep roots in the Vladimir land, where in the last quarter of the 19th century a choir of Vladimir horn players arose under the direction of N.V. Kondratyev.
