This theme is closely related to the special high spirituality of the royal family, the tragic date of the departure from the earthly life of which was dedicated to the entire Yekaterinburg Festival, as well as its evenings and meetings.
Leading soloists of Alisher Navoi Grand Theater - soprano Nadejda Bandelet and mezzo-soprano Anastasiya Yudina with beautiful voices and distinctive acting skills, in creative union with the accompanist and composer Lyudmila Slonim - presented a refined and profound works.
Uzbekistan musicians also presented two premieres - the author romances by the composer Lyudmila Slonim, which were performed in Yekaterinburg for the first time.
The poetic author evening of Andrei Slonim was held on the other day of the Festival, where he recited his spiritual, lyrical, ironic and parable poems of various years.
Guests from Tashkent were warmly received by the whole public. On the initiative of the editors of the Soyuz TV channel, several television programs and interviews were recorded with their participation, as well as a special program with Andrei Slonim, within which he recited his poems.
