There is plenty of information on a website dedicated to the ‘To Russia with Love’ event in Berlin, October 7, 2013. Daniel Barenboim, Martha Argerich, Emmanuel Pahud, Sergei Nakariakov, Katya Buniatishvili, Giya Kancheli, Nicolas Altstaedt, Elisabeth Moser and Roman Kofman will join Gidon Kremer and his Kremerata Baltica for a concert at the Philharmonie. Prior to the concert, a forum of information and a panel discussion take place at the same venue.

With this event the participating artists together with various human rights organizations want to raise awareness for the deteriorating human rights situation in Russia. ‘To Russia with Love’ will take place on the seventh anniversary of the killing of the journalist and government critic Anna Politkovskaya. According to the organizers « it is a tribute to her and the bravery of those in Russia who, despite of all the threats, continue their fight for human rights. »
