Moscow Conservatory is Hosting a Festival Dedicated to the Victory Day
May 8, 2018 10:32


The 6th International Arts Festival "Dedicated to Victory Day ..." started in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on May 7.
The festival’s art director, Professor Alexander Solovyov, said that the idea of ​​such a festival "arose from the need to comprehend the theme of the Great Patriotic War through existing works of art in a variety of genres."
Symphony of Hope
The festival was opened in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory with the Seventh "Leningrad" Symphony composed by Dmitry Shostakovich and performed by the State Symphony Academic Capella of Russia under the conductorship of the People's Artist of Russia, Valery Polyansky.
“The Seventh Symphony is often called the Victory Symphony, but I do not see it that way, rather it is a symphony of struggle or a symphony of hope ... I'm happy to have been entrusted to open the festival “Victory Day is dedicated ...”, and I have the opportunity to touch this great symphony once again. Every time when conducting, I discover something new in it for myself,” – Valery Polyansky said.

In Memory of the Soldier
The project “The Ballad of the Unknown Soldier”, scheduled for May 8 in the Rachmaninov Hall will be a tribute to the memory of Joseph Mikhailovsky, an outstanding graduate of the Moscow Conservatory and the director of the Tula Philharmonic Society, which is presently named after him. During the war, he was a design pilot and commander.
Young musicians will take part in this concert: the Senior Choir of the Prokofiev Moscow State Music School, the Choir of the Center for Talented Children of the Tula Region "Studio of Talents" and pupils of the Tula Suvorov Military School. The Moscow Chamber Orchestra "Seasons" will perform as well.
On the Roads of Vysotsky

For the first time in the history of the Moscow Conservatory, songs by Vladimir Vysotsky - about the war and love, friendship and fidelity – will be performed there. The audience will hear new arrangements of the "Songs about a Friend", "Ballads of Time", "Ballads of Struggle", "Songs to Mari", and others.
Along with the Chamber Choir of the Moscow Conservatory, the concert, will be attended by actor and stage director Nikita Vysotsky, who heads "The Vysotsky’s House on Taganka", as well as jazz singer Christina Aglink, and stage director Peter Tataritsky. A number of songs will be performed to the accompaniment of the organ played by Eugenia Krivitskaya.
