Sonata Streamline to music of Rachmaninoff.
On July 7th 2013, the fifth anniversary concert of the classical music festival “Moscow Nights” was hosted in Deauville, a suburb of Moscow. The event was supported by Swiss manufacture Ulysse Nardin which presented a musical novelty – the Sonata Streamline watch.
Traditionally, annual summer open-air concerts gather the best performers of classical music. This year the festival was represented by the outstanding musician, People's Artist of Russia, pianist Denis Matsuev with the program “Unknown Rachmaninoff”.
During the evening not only artists pleased the classical music admirers, but also partners of the musical festival. Swiss manufacture Ulysse Nardin presented the main musical novelty of the season – the Sonata Streamline watch – combining the aesthetics of modern design, precision, adaptability of materials and smart features. Complementing the degree of engineering and other highly skilled expertise necessary to bring this watch to life is a playful side that takes one back to their childhood. The Ulysse Nardin Stranger was inspired by the classical music box; it’s as if an actual music box was whittled down and flattened to become this superb timepiece. Sonata Streamline was presented in two versions: in the elegant titanium case with ceramic bezel and in a rose gold case.
Between performances, the host of the evening, People's Artist of Russia, Svyatoslav Belza, invited Maxim Andrianov, Ulysse Nardin Head of Mission in Russia, on stage. His purpose was to congratulate the participants and organizers of the music festival on the anniversary, and to remind the audience how inexorable time is, leaving memories of only true masterpieces and outstanding works of art, music and Haute Horlogerie.
The event was attended by over 500 guests, consisting mainly of representatives of the Russian business elite, and famous figures from the art and cultural community.
