“Up Above Moscow” is a cycle of open-air music nights up on a rooftop offering unique views of Moscow. The dialogue between musicians and their audiences takes place on the rooftop of the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman pavilion, at the footing of the iconic 24-meter sculpture, a world-renowned symbol of the Soviet Union.
A rooftop time at the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman is not only a great outdoor choice for a summer night but also a chance to expand your music tastes, to add a new angle to your collection of the city’s best sights, and an opportunity to visit all exhibitions currently run by the Exhibition Center.
Music nights at the Worker and Kolkhoz Woman are conducted in two formats, with ‘Rooftop Jazz’ performances on Wednesdays and ‘Electronic Thursdays’ given to electronic musicians and sound designers.
August 19, 8pm-11pm

Irakli Jazz is a band led by the two Iraklis, Georgian musicians Irakli Dolidze and Irakli Sanadiradze. The rooftop performance by the quartet will feature popular lyrical jazz music by famous jazz composers — from Duke Ellington to other big names of the 1940-1960s, including Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn, Erroll Garner, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Michel Legrand, and Herbie Hancock.
With each concert, the two friends from Tbilisi bring in outstanding masters of improvisation. This time, they will perform together with Yuri Yaremchuk, the Ukrainian saxophonist and guru of new jazz, and pianist Vladimir Kruglov of Krugly Band.
