The event was held in celebration of the 20-year anniversary of the University - many prominent politicians, journalists, cultural figures lectures and recitals. Among them - Mikhail Gorbachev, G. Popov, E. Radzinsky and, most importantly, Alexander B. !!!
It was a concert in a small hall (although called the Grand Ballroom), in a very cozy atmosphere. What is most surprising entry to the concert was free for all, not just related to the university. The concert starts at 18.00 was quite problematic for those working on the standard schedule, but how it can prevent to get to a concert !! The hall is mainly attended by teachers / staff members of the University, but there were also students.
The songs alternated answering questions from the audience. And the first people apparently feel free to ask questions, but towards the end of the number of those interested is clearly increased. I asked about the theater AG - when will the opening, etc. Of course the most interesting to me, but would also like to present at the concert were aware of the issue. But no specific date, Alexander Borisovich, unfortunately, not announced.
There was an interesting question of teaching and a very interesting answer about job Gnessinke, GITIS - both as head of the department of vocal professor, AG came to work in jeans and a t-shirt :) I envy those students :)
Throughout the concert, I could not realize that all this reality that I am at the concert of Alexander Borisovich, what I hear this is unreal beautiful voice. In December - concert at the Variety Theatre in January - a concert of Alexandra Pakhmutova, now, in February - a concert at the International University. Indeed, just fantastic !!!!
What was executed - "We Were Young", then the guitar something that we have known and loved songs from Neformat as well as a minus the guitar. His voice was so powerful that the microphone was just odd !!!! In the audience were people who definitely heard "sports" for the first time and watch their reaction was very interesting. AG even warned that the song has unprintable word and he will wave his hand especially for those whom these words annoy - you can manage to close the ears :) but no one did.
After the concert, many have come to the scene to be photographed, so here it is - a man stands at the scene and on the stage of hypertension. We continued to ask questions, to talk about how been to AG concerts in the 70s ....
