The brilliant composer Frederic Chopin was very different from most of his predecessors and even contemporaries. He wrote works only for piano.
This unique creator left us no opera, no symphony, no overture. That is why his composing talent becomes so amazing, because Chopin managed to become an innovator in piano music.
Crying to the sound of music
March 1, 1810, a few dozen kilometers from Warsaw, in the village of Zhelyazova-Volya, a boy was born in the family of a Polish and a Frenchman, who was named Frederick. The family lived in the estate of the count. There, Chopin’s father worked as a teacher of his children. Soon Nicolas Chopin was offered to go to work in the Warsaw composer Frederic Continue reading
It can be said without exaggeration that this singer wrote one of the pages of the modern history of Ukraine with her work. She made a cultural breakthrough when she won the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest. Then Ruslana was called the mistress of Europe, the Ukrainian Joan of Arc, pride and the national symbol of the country. She remains so now – independent and wayward, selfless and brave, energetic and, of course, “wild”.
Ruslan can not be compared with any artist in the world. It is surprisingly original, like the Hutsul region.

And the ancestors of the mother (Armenians by nationality) had to leave Continue reading
