Alexander Gradsky sings on Verdi to blues

November 24th to Vladivostok visits People's Artist of Russia Alexander Gradsky, a living legend of Russian rock. On the same day, he will perform a single concert in DKMe. Last time the maestro toured in our region June 28, 2001.

Four years ago, Alexander B. played a single concert and gave a single interview to "Komsomolskaya Pravda". It's time to remember the past.

In 2001, he did not have time to adapt and rest after the flight from Moscow. On a visit to Primorye Gradskij set aside day, including the two-hour performance. A contact with "KP", despite the fatigue, the musician went after the sold-out concert. In that time he has pleased fans of classical performance, rock-and-roll, and his hits during perestroika - "We are not waiting for change" and "antiperestroika blues". Unfortunately, the current is still. What Gradskij, incidentally, is also acknowledged with regret.

- These songs are relevant not only for your city. But I'm good to Putin. I think Putin is the best option from what we were offered. While the president normally do. He - and sane person goes on the principle of common sense. He has a very good feature, like all middle-level officers. Even if they are uneducated, they always have common sense. They do everything in the mind. Putin criticized what he is cautious, but I think this is just fine. He has the ability and desire to learn.

By the way, contrary to popular belief about the dislike of the press Gradsky maestro agreed to an interview without ambition and metropolitan snobbery. Although in reality, if not on it, it can send and mother. For it will not rust. And what Gradski - hard man, too, is true. When it is necessary, of course. For example, in his lexicon is no verb "to forgive." As he admitted: "I do not use that word at all." And his credo goes against lines nostalgic schlager "How young we were." Gradskij does not forgive any betrayal or mistakes.

The upcoming tour eminent musicians in Vladivostok based on his recent concerts in New York at Carnegie Hall in Moscow. Where he introduced viewers to not only own songs, but also the classical repertoire: Bizet, Verdi, Puccini, Rachmaninov, Neapolitan songs and Russian romances. The program was called "From Verdi to the blues." November 24 Gradskij sing "From Verdi to blues" in Vladivostok.
