"Hello, this is One Tram Radio. It’s no ordinary tram, but a musical one; the only tram that will take you to your destination and play you some music along the way." These are the opening words of the broadcast inside the Muscial Tram, as it set out on its first trip from Kaliningrad’s main square to Depot No.1, the venue for the opening of the Organ+ festival. An audience of some 500 people attended an excellent performance by the Lithuanian ensemble Subtilu-Z. The tram has become more than a Kaliningrad sightseeing attraction; it’s also a musical tutor to public transit passengers. It plays Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Tariverdiev and others, and presents the city’s culture news. The famous Monteverdi-Chor (Hamburg) enjoyed a triumphant success at the festival with its two programmes: Five Centuries of Choir Music (in collaboration with Moritz Schott, Mikael Tariverdiev International Organ Competition prize winner) and Mozart’s Requiem.
