Seventieth anniversary of Oleg Kagan at the Moscow Conservatory Automatic translate
MOSCOW. The 17th Moscow Music Festival in memory of Oleg Kagan ended.
The Mozartian nature of the talent of violinist Oleg Kagan was obvious to everyone who surrounded him on stage and in life. Light, charming, artistic, he generously shared his love of music. Speaking in chamber ensembles, in duets with Richter or Natalia Gutman, he did not focus the attention of the public on his person. Musical horizons and phenomenal possession of the instrument allowed him to equally masterly perform the classics and the avant-garde, falling in love with the audience in the most innovative works. Therefore, both Schnittke and Gubaidulina often offered Kagan their new works for the first performance. That is why his interpretations of Berg, Schoenberg, Mansuryan are so convincing. His many years of creative collaboration with Svyatoslav Richter strengthened not only brilliant performing skills. They were on the same wavelength and in the versatility of hobbies, deep knowledge in painting, literature, and other forms of art.
The courage with which he accepted a fatal illness and early departure, a farewell concert played a couple of days before his death, unwillingness to broadcast his pain to others cause unlimited respect. The power of his charm, sincerity and openness was so large-scale and contagious that it did not give rise to Salrev’s envy. Only sincere delight in contact with this art. Therefore, his friends and colleagues are so eager to respond to the invitation to participate in the festival in memory of Oleg Kagan, so those who were lucky to see the musician on stage are eager to get on it. Mstislav Rostropovich noted the most important quality that was inherent in Kaagan. He was distinguished by an incredible tenderness for music, friends, for the people around him. It was such an atmosphere of sincere joy that reigned throughout the festival, which was held from January 15 to 23 at the Moscow Conservatory. It was masterly, enthusiastically performed and listened to Brahms, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Rossini, Mozart, Respighi, Kancheli, Pushkaryov, Sibelius. Wonderful performers appeared on stage these days - Yuri and Ksenia Bashmety, Alexander Buzlov, Andrey Usov, Alexander Trostyansky, daughter of Oleg Kagan and Natalya Gutman - Maria, a talented musician Svyatoslav Moroz, son of Natalya Gutman, whose first mentor in the violin game was Oleg Moiseevich. These days, the brilliant violinist would have turned 70 years old.
