Anniversary of Vladimir Jurowski

04.04.2022

On April 4th, Honorary conductor of the Svetlanov Symphony Orchestra Vladimir Jurowski celebrates his anniversary.

Dear Vladimir!

The staff of the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia "Evgeny Svetlanov" are sending you their heartfelt wishes on the occasion of your birthday anniversary! 

Many years ago we began our creative collaboration with Rachmaninoff's frenzied "Symphonic Dances" and Stravinsky's dazzling "The Firebird". The hopes were high and the enthusiasm knew no limits. But few could confidently predict then that together we would create one of the most vivid moments in the state orchestra's history. It would be an impossible task to list all of the events that have left their unforgettable mark on our hearts and, most importantly, on the hearts of our listeners. 

Take, for example, "Stories with Orchestra", a series of educational concerts, where music and words merge into one harmonious whole and form a union like no other before it, or "Another Space" festival, a home for 20th and 21st century music, which your talent has made as appealing to the audiences as only the music of Beethoven and Tchaikovsky has been until now.  

By offering music lovers your programmes, legendary for their perfection and deep insight, you appeal to reason and feeling, you prompt thinking and compassion. Every concert with your participation becomes a special event, irrespective of whether we're performing some old and familiar pieces or find ourselves amidst the creation of entirely new scores. We wish you the best of health and wellbeing for many years to come!In other words, we are happy to have created music with you over the years and truly hope that peace and calm will prevail, that we will once again find ourselves on the same stage to reunite in some unforgettable experiences. 

Yours,
State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia "Evgeny Svetlanov"
