Sunny Georgia has become the birthplace of many talented people. It was here that poets, musicians, sculptors, filmmakers and other creative personalities became famous all over the world.

The performer’s concerts were held on all continents and everywhere full halls greeted him with warmth, gratitude and enthusiasm.

In musical culture, personalities of such a scale appear extremely rarely, the more valuable their contribution to world history. Perhaps it sounds rather pathetic, but we were lucky to live at the same time with such people, because not everyone has the opportunity to touch the work of those who are recognized as cult during life. Undoubtedly, one of these favorites is the magnificent Madonna. Her merits are appreciated. The Guinness Book of Records marked her as the most commercially successful performer of all time, and the authoritative Time magazine included Madonna in the list of the most influential women of the last century. Journalists have long called her the queen of pop music, but the path to this title was not easy for the singer.

First introduce myself. Pyatov Ilya Alexandrovich. A simple listener, but I assure you, the listener is attentive. He attended concerts of the Pacific Symphony Orchestra with different intensities since 1993. He was at more than half of the TSO concerts, which were conducted by Mikhail Arkadyev. I have personally known him since September 2009. He attended many of his rehearsals; well knowing the main part of the repertoire and having experience as a sound engineer, I listened from the hall to the sound of the orchestra and communicated my observations about the balance of the volumes of various groups of instruments. He worked as a sound engineer in separate concerts, including during the performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and his Wellington Victory at Vittoria.

The point of view of Mikhail Arkadyev, repeatedly expressed by him in various interviews, is presented in sufficient Continue reading

Look at these plants, so beautiful, these roses, these flowers of Veronica – they are so beautiful. A brilliant sun illuminates the whole world; this deity created him. Moon, stars illuminate our night. Without You bread could not grow, the waves of these beautiful waters … we would die without them. The seas, whose stretch is so great. Rivers surround them … God created them. Mighty God, They worship you! .. ”
How similar are these lines with the words of the pre-initial, 103rd, psalm, aren’t they? But to whom do they belong? And what do they have to do with the Dnepropetrovsk concert? Continue reading
