On June 29, 2023, the presentation of the multimedia project of the Russian National Museum of Music “Music of Heroes” took place on the virtual site of the Russian House in Brussels. The project presented by Mikhail Bryzgalov, Director General of the Russian National Museum of Music, Honored Art Worker of the Russian Federation.

“Music of Heroes” is a synthesis of the museum and theater, music and literature, photography and cinema. The music of heroes is the music of those who worked in the rear, fought on the front lines, gave concerts at the front, supporting the morale of the soldiers. In these terrible and difficult years, music connected the whole country: the newly created works reflected heroic deeds, humor, love, homesickness.

The virtual exhibition is accompanied by an audio performance that turns page after page through the terrible days of the war before the audience. Each chapter is complemented by archival material rich in content: animated photographs, unique autographs, documents and audio recordings from the museum’s collection, video chronicles of the war years.
