The birth of a project

After two years, it took place in the capital of Germany in the central square of Gendarmenmarkt, collecting some 20,000. Viewers. "A very warm welcome" We also met in Berlin, where we spoke this year, said Turkish. -Berliners filled the area we were speaking. "In these moments, I have been thinking about my father, Frontovike, who went through the entire war, of all our soldiers who liberated Europe from fascism."
According to the Turkish, the repertoire is now in progress. "Such a programme cannot be presented without ' Katyusha ', ' smugljanki ' or ' Dark Night '." "We also want to remember the songs of our allies who entered the musical record of Victory," the artist noted.
"In France and today, it sounds like a famous" guerrilla song "that was written by the Russian member of the anti-fascist struggle in France, Anna Marley," he stressed. In 1943, he reminded the conductor that Marley's song had official status as a resistance hymn.
"For us, this is a special and very important project, and we want these songs to also be heard in other capitals in memory of the liberation of the continent from the Nazi occupation," said Turkish. "This is an enormous response in the hearts of people, both in Russia and abroad."
