Vladimir Fedoseyev

      Literary and musical composition is quite a rare genre, which orchestras do not often dare to undertake. Vladimir Fedoseyev, Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra is one of the few who are not afraid of improvising.
      
      In his composition Mr. Fedoseyev creates a peculiar dialogue of opera and the literary source, of the symphonic orchestra and drama actors.
      
      Prokofievs opera War and Peace is represented only with the famous Waltz, which together with the Tchaikovskys overture Year 1812 draw musical story lines of the Bolkonskys and the Rostovs. Beethovens Third Symphony serves as a symbolical equivalent of the destinies of the two titans: Napoleon and Kutuzov.
      
      The word of Leo Tolstoy, staging by Pyotr Fomenko, drama etudes by Mikhail Philippov (Mayakovsky Theatre) and Darya Moroz (MXAT) along with the creative will of Vladimir Fedoseyev produce a most vivid and powerful artistic effect.
      
      This composition awarded with the Gold Angel of the Edinburgh Theatre Festival and very successfully performed at the Cannes Festival of Russian Art in August is one of the major events of 2007, announced the Year of the Russian Language.
