Presentation guests were Alexandra Pakhmutova Vladislav Kazenin, Alexander Tchaikovsky and other famous artists.
Chairman of the Union of Composers of Russia Vladislav Kazenin noted that Khrennikov is a unique figure in the history of Soviet music.» This is an outstanding musician, social activist, curator of all our problems and historical events, beginning in 1948, when Tikhon led our organization «, explained Kazenin.
Pakhmutova admitted that Khrennikov music accompanied her from childhood.
» It is remarkable that he is loved and remembered. But it’s unfair, is not performed very often. It would be nice to see our memory is not limited to the anniversary celebrations. I would like to live, and his music was played and young people to learn about this great man and a great musician «, she told.
Alexander Tchaikovsky expressed his confidence that Khrennikov anniversary is an event that people support in any way. He told me that musicians such as Yuri Bashmet and Valery Gergiev, will also take part in the celebration
