Anniversary of the outstanding musician and person Emil Gilels automatic translate
MOSCOW. In the Great Hall of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory, a series of celebrations in honor of the 100th anniversary of Emil Gilels ended.
Critic and teacher Grigory Mikhailovich Kogan compared the pianistic speech of Emil Gilels with an avalanche, which is worthlessly decorated with bows of fractional nuances. So he retorted to comments about the absence of shades in the interpretations of the famous pianist. Gilels himself throughout his life stubbornly did not fit into the framework imposed on him, refuted the opinion about him. Foaming for a lack of nuances could respond with the harrowing «Moonlight» by Debussy, the refined pieces of Rameau (Jean-Philippe Rameau) or the piercing lyrics of the plays of the beloved Grieg. The unsavory 16-year-old boy won the First All-Union competition of performers in 1933, initially embarrassing the public with his restraint, and then forced her to applaud standing and wipe the tears of joy from meeting with real talent.
And trying to hang on Hilelsa a label of orthodoxly correct communist, it is enough to remind of its decency and devotion to the memory of Bertha Mikhailovna Reingbald. It was she who prepared him for the first, victorious competition for him, opened for him the way to those heights that his talents deserved. Even after leaving for Moscow, already in the status of a student of the legendary Neuhaus, he did not lose contact with his beloved teacher. The end of her life was terrible. Deprived after returning from the evacuation of an apartment occupied by an official from the NKVD, she could not return to work in the conservatory again. Unable to withstand moral abuse, in 1944 committed suicide. For several decades the name of the talented teacher was forgotten. But Gilels did not touch this unconsciousness, he did not stop talking about her and called her the main musical mentor of her life, the only teacher. Emil Grigorievich insisted that on the poster of the concert, dedicated to the 30th anniversary of her tragic departure, her name would not vanish.
In the jubilee concert, which took place on December 12 at the Moscow Conservatory, there were works by Emil Grigorievich’s favorite composers - Grieg, Beethoven, Mozart, which were part of his huge repertoire. The concert was attended by the grandson of Gilels - Cyril. Pianists Alexander Gindin, Boris Blokh, Basinia Shulman performed accompanied by the Kaluga Youth Symphony Orchestra under Alexey Tkachenko.
