VIRTUOZ MUSIC WITHOUT BOUNDARIES Eugene Sokolovsky

A little more than a hundred years ago, the famous poet said that if the stars are lit, then someone needs this. Interpreting Vladimir Mayakovsky, we can say with confidence that the modern viewer or listener was just waiting for such a star – filled with new meaning, emotions, ideas, fresh perception of musical art that knows no boundaries and stereotypes. That is why Evgeni Sokolovsky appeared in the creative horizon. He says that he always dreamed of creating new melodic and airy piano music, saturated with bright colors, emotions, dizzying turns to match the new time, to convey his feelings and in each new composition to give people a whole world of emotions.

KNIGHT OF OPERATION FLORIMON HERVE

This composer composed various spiritual works, but did not admit to anyone that he dreamed of operetta. Then he nevertheless created 80 operettas, although he already dreamed of completing a symphony-oratorio. Over time, Florimon Herve was recognized as the father of the operetta, but the addictions of the eccentric creator always doubled, as, indeed, his whole life. A gifted singer, composer, actor and playwright was eccentric and unpredictable. Nobody knew about his double life, nor about the plot of his best operettas in a madhouse, becoming the most fun and mocking composer of the second half of the 19th century and creating a perky satirical genre.

On the way to church
Little is known about the childhood and youth of Florimon Herve. He was born in the small town of Uden in northern Continue reading
