Musical Monument to Vladimir Vysotsky to Appear in Vladivostok

An unusual monument to the outstanding poet, singer and actor Vladimir Vysotsky wil be set up in Vladivostok

      It is expected to be not merely a monument, but a musical monument, surrounded with sounds of the well-known bard’s songs records playing day and night.

      Young Seaside sculptor Peter Chegodayev has become the winner of the competition for creation of the unique musical monument. The monument is planned to be set up in the Theatre Square in the center of Vladivostok. It is not ruled out that the monument project may be implemented this summer.

      Vladimir Vysotsky visited Vladivostok in 1971. Because of nonflying weather he could not take off for Moscow from the capital of Primorye. The bard called his friends and asked to arrange a few non-advertized concerts in Vladivostok. The singer’s first performance started just after 2.5 hours after his call. The concert gathered together about two thousand listeners. The Seaside regional committee of Communist party of the Soviet Union forbade carrying out following performances in Vladivostok. Vladimir Vysotsky could not even get the earned money, which at his request was subsequently contributed to the Peace Fund.
