The Lecture Of A Composer Alexander Ivanov «Our Genius Contemporary»

On November 16, as a part of the librarian project «Music for Everybody», took place a lecture of a member of the Belarusian Composers Union, musician and tutor Alexander Ivanov, which he dedicated to his teacher Boris Tishchenko.

A. Ivanov shared with memories of the childhood years of Boris Tishchenko, that fell on war and blockade years, the memories of the composer's mother, who taught little Boris to love and listen to the music with heart, who told that music is about each of us.

Boris Tishchenko is a Soviet and a Russian composer. He was born in 1939 in Leningrad. After graduating with a gold medal from a secondary school in 1954, he entered the music school at the Rimsky-Korsakov Leningrad State Conservatory. From 1957 to 1962 he was studying at the Rimsky-Korsakov Leningrad State Conservatory, where he was accepted from the third year of the music school. He studied at the Composer's Faculty (honours degree), at the Piano Faculty (honours degree). In 1965 he completed his postgraduate studies at the Leningrad Conservatory with a degree in «Composition» with a composer Dmitry Shostakovich.

It is hard to overestimate the role of creative contacts with Shostakovich; the composer dedicated the Third and Fifth Symphonies to Shostakovich later. At the request of Mstislav Rostropovich, Tishchenko wrote the First Cello Concerto in 1963, which won the 1st prize at the International Composers Competition «Prague Spring-1966» 3 years later.

Boris Tishchenko explored in details and combined world folklore, oriental philosophies, past and present of music in his art.

From 1965 he worked as a teacher at the Leningrad Conservatory. At various times he gave lessons at the Faculty of Music Directing, conducted a seminar about contemporary foreign music at the Orchestral Faculty, and gave lectures on instrumentation at the Faculty of Theoretical Composition. From 1974 until the last days he taught a composition class. He brought up a number of famous composers.

Boris Tishchenko wrote 8 symphonies, 4 program symphonies, ballets «Yaroslavna», «Twelve», «Fly-Bee», the opera «the Stolen Sun», the musical comedy «Cockroach», «Requiem» after A. Akhmatova, several vocal cycles, 9 concerts for various instrumental ensembles, 10 piano sonatas, 4 sonatas for solo strings, music for theatrical performances and films. In his work he continued the tradition of symphonism by D. Shostakovich. He performed often his own compositions as a pianist.

An excerpt from a concert for harp and chamber orchestra was performed during the event.
