«We all speak different languages, live on different continents, think differently, but each of us perceives the universal, lively and multifaceted language of music. That is why F.E.S. Cultural Development Foundation was created» —
– Igor Smolin, President of the F. E. S. Foundation
«We created F.E.S. for one purpose – the development of musical culture and art here in Russia, which is impossible without working with young talents. F.E.S. FOUNDATION team has big plans, because each of us has been involved or is now working in the classical music business. The Foundation is a matter of honor for us. Therefore, choosing quality as a priority in our work, focusing on the European principles of partnership, we are open to an honest dialogue and invite you to collaborate»
