In the final part of the concert Emir Kusturica’s admirers will be able to talk to the legendary film director in the format "free microphone."
During their visit the musicians plan to see Omsk cultural and historical places associated with the name of Fyodor Dostoevsky. Emir Kusturica’s interest in biography of Fyodor Dostoevsky can be explained his intention to write a book «My dear Fyodor», which is dedicated to Russian writer. Possibly, the plot of this book should form the basis of the script for the next film by Kusturica.
In an interview, the director shared the concept of the book:
«A film director is dreaming about shooting the film «Crime and Punishment», but he cannot find money for his movie. Then he meets a rich man, who offers him to kill his wife for money. And when the main character finds himself in the same situation as Raskolnikov, he raises the question: Why did Raskolnikov think about the murder so many times?
Because it is too simple: you can go to the nearest supermarket, buy an ax and then money is in your pocket! Then is appears that living without ideals in our time is so easy and simple. We rarely ask ourselves the questions about moral, good and evil. This is very bad».

Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and Schubert will be performed in Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theater
On October, 6 the artistic director and principal conductor of Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theater Ainars Rubikis and the Symphony Orchestra of Novosibirsk Theater will present the concert program of classical composers’ compositions.
In the program there are: Tchaikovsky Concert for violin and orchestra which is one of vertices of playing the violin; Symphony in Three Movements by Igor Stravinsky, composed in post war time and, from the stories told by the composer, telling about the war; and the most ambitious of the Schubert symphonies – The Ninth Symphony, known as the "Great C major Symphony."
The violin part in Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto will be performed by Olga Mikhailova a graduate of the M.I. Glinka Novosibirsk Conservatory, familiar to the audience as a soloist of summer concert Gaudeamus-Gala. The concert is a sophisticated virtuoso piece in the violin repertoire; it allows showing all the virtuoso abilities of instruments and soloists. However, it continues the lyrical symphonic genre by Tchaikovsky. The Violin Concerto is a compulsory piece at the prestigious P.I. Tchaikovsky International Competition, and its performance is the high level landmark.
"Symphony in Three Movements" by Stravinsky belongs to a different ideological direction. This is “ …the experience of our hard life, with its rapidly changing events, despair and hope, with its incessant torment, extreme tension, and finally, some enlightenment, left no trace in the symphony” (I. Stravinskiy). The piece is almost modern, complicated by language, full of hidden meanings, that is certainly true in our time.
The Monumental Symphony Nr. 9 by Franz Schubert will be the apotheosis of the concert. This epic Symphony is the last work in the composer’s creative way. It is radically different from the previous opuses.
“… Gigantic piece, wherein the huge size and great power and richness of inspiration” (P. Tchaikovsky).
“Vienna with its Cathedral of Saint Stephen, beautiful women, with its entire splendor, belted by Danube countless ribbons, nestled in the blooming valley gradually turning into higher mountains... The charming landscape in front of our eyes makes sound the strings, which otherwise would never have sounded in us...” (R.Schumann).
Olga Mikhailova (violin) and The Symphony Orchestra of the Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre will take part in the concert. Conductor - Music Director and Chief Conductor of the theater, Laureate of International Conducting Competition Ainars Rubikis.
