Description This virtuoso fantasy for violin and piano is sort of a reflection on the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945. It incorporates nine famous songs of the Soviet composers written during the wartime or dedicated to the subject of war.
Composer masterly blends well-known tunes with his own original material presented only in the meditations of solo violin using it as a unifying device. Despite of stylistic diversity of the songs, composer luckily managed to reach considerable homogeneity, creating a composition filled with poetical emotions, humor and positivity.
