Russian conductor Valery Gergiev has inaugurated his private concert hall in Repino, a suburb of St. Petersburg, the Russian Internet magazine ‘Classical Music News’ reports. Gergiev used a piece of land which he got on a long-term lease for the construction of a two-story cottage back in 2005. He later revised his plans and started building a chamber music hall for an audience of 100 people. The investment of € 2,5 million was apparently made by himself. Here is a photo of the inauguration.
