Ufa composer Azamat Khasanshin’s works were premiered in Moscow.
The Chamber Orchestra of the P. Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory, directed by People’s Artist of the Russian Federation Felix Korobov, presented a new program of the “Musical Parallels” cycle. That evening the audience enjoyed the performance of the Missa Concertata for Violin, Viola and Orchestra, which Khasanshin created for Maestro Korobov.
Another premiere of Azamat Khasanshin’s music pieces took place as part of an important event for the national school of composers - the “Dedication Concert” to People’s Artist of the RSFSR Albert Lehman. Quartet No. 7 for two Violins, Viola and Cello (version for string orchestra) was performed, dedicated to the memory of his teacher - the outstanding Russian composer and public figure Albert Leman (1915-1998), who greatly influenced the formation of the national composition school. The Ufa author’s piece was performed by the Moscow chamber group “The Art of Music” (director and conductor - laureate of international competitions Sergei Sviridov).
“Leman’s school has become a striking phenomenon in the history of the musical culture of multinational Russia,” commented Azamat Khasanshin. “For more than 50 years of teaching among his students were the greatest creators of our time: Sofia Gubaidulina, Mikhail Kollontai, Alexander Raskatov, Valery Kalistratov, outstanding masters of the national republics - Almaz Monasypov, Rafael Belyalov (Tatarstan), Daniil Khasanshin (Bashkortostan), Ramazan Fataliev (Dagestan), Fedor Vasiliev (Chuvashia), Alexey Chyrgal-ool (Tuva) and many others.
The Rachmaninov Hall of the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory also housed a Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra, which the author dedicated to the memory of pianist Andrey Zheltonog (1972-2018). Andrey Zheltonog was one of the brightest graduates of Professor Sergei Dorensky's class from 1996 to 2003. He worked at the Moscow State Conservatory as an assistant professor from 2003 to 2018 as a professor at the Moscow Conservatory branch at the Kurashiki Sakuya Music Institute in Japan.
The Exemplary Orchestra of the National Guard RF directed by Roman Belyshev (chief of the orchestra Colonel Azat Shakhmukhametov) and professor of the Moscow Conservatory, soloist of the Moscow Concert Rustem Kudoyarov were the first to perform the concert.
