ELENA SURZHIKOVA: “I DO NOT LIE!”

In her youth, Elena Surzhikova was struck by the songs of Patricia Carly “Forgive me this whim” and Margarita Velazquez “Besame Mucho”. “These are women!” She admired and once dreamed of writing her song and singing it just as well.

Remembering childhood
Maxim Isaakovich wrote hundreds of songs in his life, was a composer in several dozens of his favorite films, the author of musicals, his name thundered throughout the Soviet Union and now Dunaevsky’s music is in demand – famous performers of the CIS countries have worked and continue to work with him.
