Musica Viva's origins go back to 1978, when violinist and conductor Viktor Kornachev founded a musical ensemble of nine players – all young and enthusiastic, and recent graduates of Moscow's musical academies. By 1988 the ensemble had grown into a fully-fledged orchestra, now under the direction of Alexander Rudin – who also gave the group its name, Musica Viva – Latin for “living music”. Musica Viva today is an all-round musical ensemble which performs the widest possible range of compositions in all styles and genres with an assured confidence. The orchestra's thoughtful programming embraces seminal mainstream works alongside fascinating rarities. The degree of immersion in music of many epochs has almost reached the level of musical archaeology. This was the basis behind the concert cycle of “Silver Classics”, which began in 2011. The repertoire of “Silver Classics” is music which was highly prized in its own era, yet which has somehow slipped through the chinks of today's concert repertoire. The performers in this cycle include a Young Artistes Program of soloists who have emerged from the ranks of European music competitions, as well as a “Cello Assembly” to which maestro Rudin invites his fellow cellists. The orchestra is famous for its novelty programmes, where unknown masterpieces are introduced. The orchestra has recorded over the twenty albums, released by international labels “Russky Sezon”, “Olympia”, “Nyperion”, “Tudor”, "Fuga Libera”, and “Melodiya”.
