21 December 2014. Some of My Favourite Things… Tchaikovsky Symphony nr 5 Conducted by Honoured Artist of Russia Captain of the First Rank A A Karabanov

00 Aleksei A Karabanov. 21.12.14

******

P I Tchaikovsky, Symphony nr 5 in E minor, op 64 (St Petersburg State Capella Orchestra) (A A Karabanov, dirigent)

******

P I Tchaikovsky, Capriccio Italien in A major, op 45 (St Petersburg State Capella Orchestra) (A A Karabanov, dirigent)

******

P I Tchaikovsky, Elégie (Larghetto elegiaco) from the Serenade for Strings in C major, Op 48 (Mikhailovsky Theatre Orchestra) (A A Karabanov, dirigent)

________________________________

I just received word from friends in the District that the Know-Nothing Republican filth are thinking of putting cultural figures such as A А Karabanov on the “sanctions list”. For those who don’t know him, he’s the dirigent of the N A Rimsky-Korsakov Central Navy Orchestra… besides being an Honoured Artist of Russia, he’s a Captain of the First Rank in the Navy. Of course, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Ann Coulter, Rush Limboob, Freddy M-G, Rod Dreher, Michelle Bachmann, and John McCain are hardly kulturny in the Russian sense of the term (its closest analogue is civilisé or courtois in French)… they’re all drooling swinishly grasping acolytes of Almighty Mammon and unflagging missionaries of Anglo American non-culture.

Listen to this performance of the Tchaikovsky Symphony nr 5 (my personal fave amongst his oeuvre) and the two shorter Tchaikovsky pieces… realise what the GOP ignoranuses want to do. They want to depress us all to their babbling toddler level. They want to punish all peoples, states, and cultures that won’t bow down before hedonism and gaping materialism (the worst, ironically, are American Radical Sectarians (AKA “Evangelicals”… with all apologies to the REAL Evangelical Church (“Lutherans”))… listen to this fruit of the Orthodox culture and compare it to the meretricious rubbish that issues forth from Nashville and Hollywood… there’s no comparison, is there? Whom would YOU rather honour… Aleksei Alekseyevich or Kim Kardashian and the Dixie Chicks? There’s no competition, is there? As I say, look at the wholesome good fruits of Holy Rus and the rotten noxious fruits of Anglo America… THAT says it all. The Almighty Dollar or Almighty God… that IS the choice…

Are they going to censor the internet, too? We’ll have to see…

4 December 2014. Pierre Narcisse and Marina Devyatova… THIS is Contemporary Russia

00 PIerre Narcsse and Marina Devyatova. 04.12.14

________________________________

In contrast to the rancid and undisguised racism of the Galician Uniate fascists, take a look at this. Marina Devyatova pairs up with Pierre Narcisse… a pop singer from Cameroun. He went to Russia to study medicine (he did get his degree)… but he also made a big splash in the entertainment world. It’s an utterly different mindset from “The Ukraine for Ukrainians only!” and “A knife for the Moskals!”

You can support Russia and its upholding of the decent Orthodox/”Red” patriot elements in Novorossiya or you can support the feral Galician White fascist Uniates and their Anglo American sugar daddies. The choice is yours. You can stand with V V Putin and HH… or you can stand with Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz… do ponder it well, for you can’t have both!

24 November 2014. Some of My Favourite Things… “New Year’s Ditties” from the Buranovskiye Babushki and Bayan Miks

00 Buranovskiye Babushki 27.05.12

00 Pres Putin with Bayan Miks. 16.08.14

______________________________

Now, here’s a mixture! The Buranovskiye Babushki and Bayan Miks! Now, that’s good family fun! The  Babushki participated in the qualifying rounds of the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest (ranked third) and were second in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku with the song Party for Everybody. S I Voitenko and Dmitri Khramkov (Bayan Miks) need no introduction. This came from a special Rossiya-1 broadcast on Orthodox Christmas in 2013… sadly, early this year, Yelizaveta Zarbatova, one of the Babas, died in the 87th year of her life (she’s the shortest one of the lot in the vid). Light a candle for her at liturgy… her death anniversary is 13 January, so, if you want to have Pannikhida served, that’s the proper date.

After posting about the konvertsy, I wanted to post on something wholesome, healthy, and life-affirming… this is the ticket!

21 November 2014. Some of My Favourite Things… Bayan Miks and Nadezhda Babkina… VIVAT BAYAN!

00 Bayan Miks 02. 10.08.14

******

_______________________________

Let’s take a break from the war and from the gross Uniates. Let’s have something wholesome and life-affirming… this was at a gala concert in Moscow, “Vivat Bayan!” celebrating the 100th anniversary of the bayan’s invention (actually, it was a modified garmon, a Russian concertina). Of course, it’s got S I Voitenko and Dmitri Khramkov, Bayan Miks… the KINGS of the bayan. Now, THIS is RUSSIAN!
