The artist is truly a universal talent, . Vladislav Uspensky
owns a wide palette of musical genres - from songs to opera, . of instrumental miniatures to large-scale symphonic canvases, . from children's plays, . film music - to the Divine Liturgy ..,
. Striking way they are welded together, are fused, melted in the crucible of the original style of the master. Music creation is incomprehensible, but you can try to trace the sources that feed the style of the creator. Vladislav Uspensky
was born Sept. 7, 1937 in Omsk. The future composer from childhood singing in church choir, and the first lessons in music was his first teacher - my mother. The indomitable desire to create was directed in the right direction recognized master of music D.B. Kabalevsky - "godfather" of the young musician. In the music school of the Moscow Conservatory, Vladislav Uspensky
broadened his understanding of music of XX century under the guidance originally thinking of the teacher with. Frida. Years of study at the Leningrad Conservatory, penetration into the rich spiritual and academic traditions of the city, merging with the creative environment of the sixties ". The terms of communication of the young author - Mstislav Rostropovich, Evgeny Mravinsky, Michael Wyman, Boris Gutnikov, Joseph Brodsky, Mikhail Shemyakin, Jacob Gordin. The secrets of composing career in. Assumption is attached under the guidance of experienced master, BA. Arapova.
Meeting with Dr.. D. Shostakovich, . whose Vladislav Uspensky
from 1962 to 1965 he studied in graduate school, . defined much of his life and creative destiny: it expanded the horizons of artistic Worldview, . identified a growing level of skill, . Finally, . deepened understanding of human nature and art,
. Vladislav Uspensky
adopted from his teacher's best qualities - not only as an author and teacher, but also as an individual. Earnestly devotion to his profession, the accuracy in words and deeds, a special delicacy of interpersonal relationships - all these traits, taken over by the great master, entered the flesh and blood of nature in. Assumption, were the invincible symbol of faith. Composer truly democratic orientation,. Assumption utterly devoid of false academic snobbery and aesthetically: for him there is no impermeable boundaries between the spheres of "high" and "low" in art, between the esoteric and "light" entertainment (E & U-Musik).
On the contrary, they are complementing and enriching each other, give rise to a unique author's style. Thus, the theatricality, primordially inherent talents in. Uspensky
, penetrates into the symphonic genre (the personification of sounds, vivid portraits of characteristics) and pop songs (solo performance "Waiting" the verses P. Rozhdestvensky), . vocal-symphonic pop and connects to the poetics of the ballet "The Cranes Are Flying"; techniques and principles of screenwriting (mounting, . rapid change of pace) penetrate the opera "Intervention", . and from Zongo last "sprout" later effervescent musical "Sherlock Holmes and the Queen of Bohemia" ..,
Paradoksalizm, not just a creative composer, but also its very nature. Features of extrovert and introvert are combined here wonderfully. On the one hand, . Vladislav Uspensky
- people, . endowed with an extraordinary public temperament, . immersed at times in the vain cares of the world ", . on the other - is an intellectual Chekhov warehouse, . a subtlest psychic organization (not from here I appeal to the prose and,
. Bunin, poetry M. Tsvetaeva, B. Pasternak and accurate "psychogram" woman's soul, in many presented in his writings with a penetrating, piercing lyricism and romanticism vsepokoryayuschey).
Spiritual, moral start in music in. Assumption deserves special attention. This is rightly said at the time of his great mentor Dr.. D. Shostakovich: ".... VA. Assumption very well aware of the ethical significance of musical creativity ... "Confirmation of this comes from many acts - human and creative - Vladislav Uspensky
: his service to his art, his pupils and colleagues. Special magnetism of the spirit (a trait also inherited from DD. Shostakovich), a sense of deep connection with his contemporaries and predecessors, a sense of spiritual duty - is the moral leitmotif of the composer. It is no accident the key word in the names of some of his works is "Dedication" ( "in the sacred" as touching the sacraments of love, . Faith, . friendship ( "Dedication" - elegiac symphony memory mother, . symphonic poem "Dedication to the courage" in memory of the perpetrators of the Seventh Symphony D,
. Shostakovich at the Leningrad blockade, the song "Dedication to a Friend", "Dedication to a woman")
. The religious shrines composer attached to the monumental choral works of the early 90's: All-Night Vigil (1990), . Divine Liturgy (1991), . "The outcome of the soul" (Dirge, . 1992), . where the canonical genres Orthodox Typicon (ritual) are painted a bright personal tone creator, . absorbing the Christian faith with their mother's milk and is now positing its cornerstone being, . perpetual engine of true art,
. A characteristic feature of the Assumption of creativity - a concern for the fate of the world, . direct response to the global conflicts and challenges: the fight against fascism and totalitarianism (opera "War with the Newts" by Karl Capek), . the dominance of vulgarity of mass culture ( "antidote" to serve her in the works in,
. Assumption songs based on pure, uncomplicated sources of folklore and natural living intonation). His compositions are always carry a charge of moral purification, the effect of catharsis.
