Satires by Alexander Gradsky

In the literary basis of this suite are the verses of Sasha the Black, taken from cycles of different years. Satire Sasha the Black, one of the most read poets of the beginning of the twentieth century, was directed against such human vices as cowardice, meanness, stupidity, immorality, philistinism, which, unfortunately, still exist in our time.

Hence the idea of writing a musical work, whose language was, would be associated with the time.

This is a cancan and early jazz, romance and "soul-numbing" lyrics in pop the style of "modern" style, the vocal of chamber music and opera music ...

Through the prism of time I made an attempt to look at the poems of this beautiful poet and found them quite modern.

The final of the suite - the voices of Caruso and Chaliapin, Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong, Vertinsky, Ray Charles and others - like a bridge from the eternal values of art to today's day.
