Culture is alive and well in the Rodina. Tannhäuser is, perhaps, my most fave piece by Wagner… I also have a soft spot for Rienzi, der Letzte der Tribunen.  The conductor for Tannhäuser is the German-based (but Russian-born) D M Yurovsky. A student orchestra in Weimar plays the Rienzi overture.

Two Donetsk Musicians to Appear at Carnegie Hall

_________________________________________

Two musicians of the Donetsk State Academic Philharmonic won an international competition in Kazan and received invitations to perform in New York in the USA. The Philharmonic’s media office reported:

Artists of the Donetsk State Academic Philharmonic Viktoriya Goncharova (piano) and Vladimir Vaskovsky (trumpet) received invitations to perform at one of the most legendary concert halls in the world… Carnegie Hall in New York (USA).

The invitation came because they were winners in the international competition “Living Spring”, held in Kazan (Republic of Tatarstan in the Russian Federation). Vaskovsky won First Prize in “Instrumental Ensemble” and Goncharova took Second Prize prize in “The Piano”. VIVA MUSIC, the organising committee of the international contest, extended the invitations to New York. The event is going to take place in June 2018. Goncharova told us that the trip to the USA was one of the prizes in the contest in Kazan and that their performance in the USA wouldn’t be under the auspices of VIVA MUSIC. The Ninth International Competition of Folk Art “Living Spring” took place in Kazan from 19 to 20 March. Soloists, ensembles, and accompanists competed at the festival… the categories included piano, string instruments, folk instruments, wind instruments, and classical vocals.

Editors:

Perspirin’ minds wanna know… will these talented musicians play in the USA, or will the Uniate/schismo nationalists blubber away until the Americans forbid them entry? What I’ve seen of the loudmouth Galician nationalist diaspora in the USA and Canada doesn’t give me much hope…

19 March 2017. Lest We Forget… They All Had Faces… They All Had Names… They Were All the CIA’s Victims

Here are the faces of the CIA’s victims… note well that the Anglos sleep well after they murder… it tells you much about them…

____________________________________

They all had faces… they all had names… and the Anglos don’t care. They kill without abandon… they maim without pity… they don’t care so long as they can fill their pockets with ill-gotten loot. The Aleksandrov Ensemble embodied a cultured and grounded Russia… the CIA embodies the lawless and grasping USA. You can choose one or the other. One culture brings out the best, the other brings out the most repulsive… but they do have such NICE and shiny toilets and sinks!

By the way, the American people are NOT the USA… the latter is a radical state brought about in the late 18th century, the first of the Radical Anti-Christian States. The American people, like all other peoples, are an organic and natural growth, not related to the so-called “American Revolution”… they’re better than that. Maybe, someday, their state will reflect their virtues…
