Hi, my friends! I have been very busy with my teaching and researches all the time, but I have a day off and have one idea I'd like to share with you. As my wife mentioned the name of my favorite Russian musician, I decided to tell you about two great pianists, composers, singers and songwriters from different countries who gave a great concert together although they hadn't known each other in person before. They are Robert Wells (Sweden) and Dmitry Malikov (Russia).
say about classic. But these pianists make Chaikovsky, Brams, Chopin sound modern, just listen to them! It is great, they make young generation get familiar with the best musical heritage, true values the mankind has got. Now I'll tell you a little about those guys.
Robert Wells is one of the best modern European pianists and arrangers. He is Swede from Stockholm, a little more than 50 now. Being 11 he was accepted as a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music and he was and still is the youngest member ever been. He became famous for his Rhapsody in Rock. He is so virtuosic! Listen to him playing, please!
Dmitry Malikov is one of the most famous and admirable Russian composers and singers. He is a very good pianist, but is very different from Robert Wells. Dmitry is about 45 and started his carreer being a conservatory student. Now he is one of the best Russian musicians and artists. His music is so tender and touching as if he suffered each note and each cord. It gives hope for the better future, it is so positive! He mostly sings about love, but the composition "13" made him world-known. I believe, I don't have to tell you what it is about:
And now listen to them playing together:
Hope, you'lll enjoy this music
