Lyrica Classic envisions a society that helps the world to discover a quality of new or unknown music by bringing it to famous stages and making high-quality productions using first-caliber artists, giving access to the unique social, emotional, and intellectual benefits achieved through musical excellence and high production quality.
We believe that only through quality performance can life be given to quality art! And through quality, we can attract new generations and bring them the love for classical music!
The mission of Lyrica Classic is to help undiscovered music to achieve the recognition it deserves, and to allow the public to evaluate the music in full, hearing the works
as the composer intended. Real artist, as well as good music, need its stage and use.
It would only be fair to mention that many musical works are not appreciated because the composers do not have adequate funding to bring their music to life, or their music was previously performed poorly and the first impression was irrevocably ruined.
Let us recall the well-known example, Rachmaninoff’s First Symphony, which is known today as one of the most beautiful and soul-touching musical works, even to an inexperienced listener. However, how many people know the first production of the symphony was performed poorly; the music was spoiled—it was a catastrophe! The critics screamed in indignation that it was impossible to perform such a terrible piece. The composer subsequently became depressed and did not write for three years! Imagine how much the world has lost. We could have had one more collection of his art songs, a couple of concertos or symphonies, if not for this ugly performance of his First Symphony, which is now known to the whole world.
The example of Rachmaninoff demonstrates the importance of quality production of new or unknown music. That is why we believe that Lyrica’s mission is so essential to humanity, the music community, and future generations. We bring justice to the composers, justice to the music, and justice to the world!
