Yesterday, 22 January, I was lucky enough to visit a recital by Alexandra Pakhmutova held in Conservatory. Tchaikovsky! Concert venue perfectly matched - only serious performers - besides A.Gradskogo, Kobzon and T.Gverdtsiteli were soloists of the Bolshoi Theatre; legendary hits Alexandra Nikolaevna alternated instrumental works of her own authorship. A.Pahmutova accompanied most performed songs.
Alexander B. sang in the first part of "How young we were," ... difficult to express emotions ... Definitely, this song has a magical effect, at mene me. That's the song I waited in vain at a concert in the Variety Theater, accustomed that it is executed every night.
In the climax of the equipment was difficult to cope with voice AH :) During the intermission, an elderly woman came up to the sound engineer, and asked, "Is everything all right with the equipment? Kobzon sounded good, but too loud Gradskij" :) Indeed, even the voice of the Bolshoi theater soloists sounded not so powerful as the voice of hypertension. Although all the participants of the concert sang very worthy.
I was not able to get applets, so who and in what sequence will play, it was a surprise for me. And how pleasant surprise was the announcement that the "Song of the alarming youth" will perform I.Kobzon, A.Gradsky and 2 artist whose names I do not remember (with joy that the AG will sing another song). Needless to say, the voice of Alexander Borisovich stood out among the others, despite the fact that the microphone is at a considerable distance ...
The final was another pleasant surprise - all participants of the concert performed by "Hope" ... Microphone AG tactfully gave T.Gverdtsiteli. That's right, why at such a luxurious voice, the microphone, his voice still occasionally drowned the others (those who sing into the microphone). And I especially liked the finale - you need to hear - AG held the last note is unrealistic long time, when everything is completed.
By the way the concert was conducted Telephoto, so watch this TV program.
In conclusion, I want to say that I enjoyed the concert - finally listened to "We Were Young" and other brilliant songs Alexandra Pakhmutova !!!
