The MMDM - Moscow International House of Music - is the biggest music centre in Russia and was built in 2002. It is centrally located on the Moscow River Bank, next to Swisshotel Krasnye Holmy Hotel, just off the Garden Ring.
The complex of the Moscow International Music House includes three concert halls. They are set on different levels and have their own entrances. The Svetlanov hall is the largest and can accommodate up to 1699 people, the Chamber hall includes 573 seats and its excellent acoustic properties enables it to hold both recitals and symphonic concerts and finally the Theatre hall with 530 seats. This unique multifunctional hall hosts performances, concerts, ballets, fashion shows and public events.
Each of the halls is built on individual design projects. The Moscow International House of Music also has an open-air concert pavilion that offers a unique experience of live music in a relaxing atmosphere and a magnificent view of the Moscow River and the centre of Moscow. Jazz festivals, classical music concerts and a variety of shows are held at the open air theatre on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. A fresh appetizing menu is provided including reasonably priced European meals.
The Organ of the Moscow International House of Music is one of the first Russian designs - a 'large' organ style twenty-first century. This unique tool, that has no analogues in Russia, is made in Germany by a consortium of the well-known German firms 'Klais' and 'Glatter-Gotz' in the tradition of the romantic 'symphony of organs'. The organ passed its technical acceptance in Bonn and was then dismantled and transferred to Moscow. The huge engineering structures (height - 14m, width - 10m, depth - 3.5m, weight - 30 tons!) took six months of twelve hours a day to mount and set up, trying to identify all of its rich sound capabilities.
