Viktor Tsoy tribute poster

The concert “Symphonic Film” is a tribute to “Kino“ (Russian for  “Film”) by a symphony orchestra.

It has already been over two decades since the tragic death of Viktor Tsoy, but the songs created by the great poet and musician still live in the hearts of thousands of Russian Women and men. His fans are of different age and social statuse, different nationalities and religions. They love his songs because they are much more than just pretty words with nice accompaniment. Tsoy’s songs are life itself, expressed in poetry and music.

This year Viktor Tsoy could have turned 50. It’s very symbolic that the project  “Symphony Film “ started the same year as the poet’s anniversary. This project has no analog in the history of Soviet Rock and will allow us to hear Tsoy’s music performed by a symphony orchestra and reevaluate the genius of the artist.

First symphonic versions of Tsoy’s songs were written in 2010 specially for the grand concert “20 years without Kino”. The compositions were welcomed so warmly by the audience that it was decided to prepare a full program.

On the day of Tsoy’s 50th birthday – July 21 – “Symphonic Film” was presented in St. Petersburg.  It was a triumph – the audience did a standing ovation. And now Ukrainian Girls and boys, as well as the visitors of Kiev, will have a unique opportunity to hear this fantastic programme live.
