You have a great history . Alexander Nevski it is one of your great heroes . Do you know the Cantata " Alexander Nevski " by Prokofiev ? A fantastic music . I had to do it , i think 25 years ago . In Sicily . There was a great choir , of course Sicilian and we had the prepare a concert for the Christmas eve . I knew that will be not very easy , because of the language , and in this way I had to find a solution . We were in summer time and I had a good idea , to put together the work necessity with the pleasure of a beautiful holiday , because in summer time in Sicily you have about 38-40°C . We had to use a great villa on the seaside . In day time , we were free , in the evening , every day , we made rehearsal from 21p.m until 23,30 ...every night , When I was small boy ,in the school , I studied the Russian language ,- and I remember , even today- the russian alphabet . I had to teach them to pronounce every word in russian. was fantastic and they had a great pleasure to do it . After the rehearsal , in the meddle of the night we went to the ice cream party , always . Of course in the autumn the rehearsals were in normal way . In December was a fantastic concerto . Was unbelievable that a sicilian choir made this Prokofiev's Cantata in russian language . This is important for the real atmosphere of specific russian music and creativity . I knew , that yours great Feodor Schaliapin , the bass singer , when he had to do the "Boris Godunov " opera in London , in the beginning of last century , he obliged the english singers and choir to make all in russian language .
This your drawing recorded me about some costumes for the Stravinski's ballets , The Fire Bird , Petrouska , in the time of Djiaghilev's ballet company , in the beginning of last century in Paris . I believe that your costumes would be wonderful for this kind of music . Now ,I would wish to you , ...Good Morning Radu I wrote you a long message ( excise me for so long ) in the Notes from the "Friends" department
