n the ballet, and generally in art, we are attracted to create samples of psychological and deep. Show dance spiritual manhood means entering into life is fun and easy. We are not pioneers in the topic, but we wanted to find "words" for her expression. We are interested in human development as a process. Here he makes the first steps on Earth, and that's already the first clash with life, first love, first drama ... As the person will manifest itself? What vital circumstances affect his personality? The turning point in the life of the hero has held us in the creation of the world ...
Natalia Kasatkina and Vladimir Vasilëv
The twentieth century has created a giant "watershed" between "serious" music and "easy". I must say that such a separation is almost non-existent at the time of Beethoven, Schubert, Glinka ... Desire to bring these poles are marked with some works of contemporary music ... It seemed to me that such an approach is justified and for topics related to èffelevskimi pictures, and humor and lyricism and grotesque, and fun, and serious. We combine and summarize their experience in working on symphonic genres on one side and pesennymi on the other. And yet I thought that the music world of the modern person includes Bach, and šansony, and Shostakovich, and jazz. And if all this can live harmoniously in one person, that's why it cannot exist in one piece?
