The virtuosity of the musicians left the audience speechless. The guests of the event rewarded the musicians with a storm of applause.

Note that the concert was held with the support of the Culture Ministry, the Azerbaijan State Academic Philharmonic Hall, and the Azerbaijan Youth Foundation.

The Philharmonic Hall is a unique centre of classical music that perfectly unites seven performing groups, including the State Symphony Orchestra, the State Choir Capella, the State Chamber Orchestra, the State Piano Trio, the State String Quartet, the State Folk Song and Dance Ensemble, as well as the State Orchestra of Folk Instruments.

In 2020, Russia's TurStat listed the Azerbaijan State Philharmonic Society among the best philharmonic halls in the CIS countries.

The rating was based on the popularity of philharmonic societies and offers of online concerts.
