The beginning of a new season is amazing. The first october concert was held together the Siberian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and conducted by maestro Dmitry Vasilyev.
The professionality of The Omsk Philharmonic team impressed me very much. Both the musicians and management, and a rare phenomenon in Russia - a new building of The Philharmonic. Its construction took place under the supervision of one of the world 's leading acoustic engineers Nicholas Edwards (UK) and artistic director Dmitry Vasilyev. I liked the external look of the building also. So it comes to the citizens. It's rarely the case with theaters and concert halls, which are not of the classical proportions and architecture.
The day before yesterday I played a concert together with my faithful friends - "Soloists of Nizhny Novgorod". This time we went to Sarov, the homeland of St. Seraphim of Sarov and the first Soviet atomic bomb. Once again, I was seized with pleasure by the concert and the entire organization of "The House of Sciente", which belongs to Russian Federal Nuclear Center (VNIIEF) - a center of scientific, social and cultural life for the Sarov's residents.
Why I don't write a word about concerts and music themsalves? Let listeners and journalists do this. I just thought once again about the role of a personality in a history. It's so gratifying to observe the wise humanitarian steps made once upon a time by the Governor Polezhaev in Omsk and the director of VNIIEF Muzrukov in Sarov .
Yet let my lowly text be accompanied with a few pictures and a fragment from the concert.
