Hero of the day — Denis Matsuev.

This year has been declared the Year of Russian cinema. So we decided to celebrate the professional holiday of filmmakers with a Russian sweep. On Novy Arbat is the area of the “jumble” where passers-by could watch films from popular film, and at the same time to jump. Throughout the city there is something like that.

Hero of the day was Denis Matsuev. In 16 hours it was presented together with Valery Gergiev documentary “Prokofiev: on the way” Anna matison. And in 19 hours was already sitting at the piano in front of the theater. With the Russian national orchestra Denis Matsuev performed outstanding works of Soviet and Russian composers, written for the movie.

It was assumed that greet the audience, Dmitry Medvedev, but he never appeared. A short speech was made by the Minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky, who looked as though accidentally looked at the light. The audience tried their cries, however, shy to get his attention, and then fell silent when the screen went the first shots. After reading the Newspapers, people were convinced that waiting for them at Theater square with open arms. Someone came from the suburbs. Not so many people gathered that night to hear an open air concert in honor of the movie. But of them fell to the ground units. An elderly woman told the guards about their illnesses, blamed on the unfairness of life. Nothing helped. Rushed the young woman, who miraculously broke through the ranks of chairs with a young son. Her daughter remained on the other side of the fence. Over the intercom came the command: “See that no one jumped over the fence. The crowd is”. It seemed that at some point people will take a Large theatre by storm.

The narrator spoke Yevgeny Mironov. Perfectly and without pathos, he read a short lecture about the stages of the path of national cinema, listing our finest actors, with a special intonation uttered the name of his teacher Oleg Tabakov. When sounded grandiose Prokofiev’s music for the film “Alexander Nevsky”, Isaak Dunayevsky “the Children of captain Grant”, by Aram Khachaturian, from “Masquerade” by Sergey Gerasimov, the premiere of which was scheduled for 22 June 1941, choked up. Movie was a great era. Thinking about how to illustrate cinema of the 90s, Denis Matsuev decided to turn to the music of Prokofiev. Accompanied by her and passed the fragments from the films “Brother”, “the land of the deaf”, “Little Faith.”

This year has been declared as the Year of Prokofiev. For the premiere of Anna matison “Prokofiev: on the way” (it was held in one of city cinemas) came Valery Gergiev and Denis Matsuev, who participated in its creation. Before the show, the choir of them. Sveshnikov featured works by Prokofiev, written for the films of Eisenstein. Were all in the foyer of the crash from a nearby room, where there was a blockbuster. The choir continued to sing and when on speakerphone repeated the announcement of the beginning of the session. The audience rushed into the hall, the foyer was empty, and the choir by their numbers exceeded the number of listeners. The man in the suit showed the choir Director Evgeny Volkov hands the cross, saying, stop it. With colleagues, we thanked Eugene for the wonderful concert that took place in extreme circumstances. And in the answer heard: “Yes you are, it’s the cinema”.

Picture of the Prokofiev is preceded by the titles: “Principles of spiritual state at the time of the journey.” According to Anna matison, a kind of diary of the Easter festival, in which are interwoven the diaries of Prokofiev. He led them for 30 years, and his last line — that again had to reduce the orchestration of the “Tale of the stone flower”. Named formalist and anti-Soviet, the composer at the end of life returned to the land of the Bolsheviks, making the course, which has done nothing whatever Gergiev. And died on the same day as Stalin. Gergiev took his place in the top ten composers, which can be recognized by the top melodies. He acted temperamentally: “was the movie “Beethoven”, where was discussed about the fate of the animal. And we have a movie where instead of dogs — Sergei Prokofiev”. Traveling with the orchestra of the Mariinsky theatre 24 11 cities and playing there, Prokofiev, Gergiev predicts that genius is a powerful move forward. This way cities and villages and captured Anna matison. On the screen — Konstantin Khabensky in the form of a Mark, who intends to buy a cottage Prokofiev. And while he sits on the porch and turns the pages of his diary. Behind appears Prokofiev performed by the same Khabensky. But the main hero of the film was Valery Gergiev.
