Composer Eduard Artemyev is going to celebrate the upcoming 75 years jubilee next month
The innovator in the field of sound effects, Eduard Artemyev is far from glamor and pathos. His life goes in his own home studio. He loves to create only at night, so that nothing would distract. On account of the composer — music for two hundred feature films.
The first experience of making music for film by Vano Muradeli «Dream Forward» Eduard Artemyev composed music for 14 films by Nikita Mikhalkov. Nikita Mikhalkov shoots the film «Sunstroke» based on Bunin’s works in Switzerland. The film director arrived in Moscow for a couple of hours just to witness the composer homage.
Artemyev music attracts bright melody, simplicity of form and harmony. Composer equally easy works in the classical genre and pop.
Penetrating melodies by Artemyev are remembered at once. For example, melody from the movie «Slave of Love» emphasizes almost palpable sense of frustration in the final. The fate of the famous actress Vera Kholodnaya in this musical theme passes before the eyes of the audience. Artemyev music has been living outside the movies, but continues to play a major role at various festivals and concerts.
