Legendary Latvian composer Raimonds Pauls said about how it will celebrate the 80th anniversary. According to the artist, he intends to arrange a superb concert in Moscow with dinosaurs Russian variety.
1 of the most fashionable contemporary composers said that already planned performance in Moscow on the occasion of the anniversary, which it will be noted in the beginning of next year. "I want to gather all the dinosaurs of the Russian pop music - Alla Pugacheva, Laima Vaikule, Valery Leontiev and other performers to put on a soiree. Because we can't imagine something from the modern repertoire, we play what once played our old songs," said Raimonds Pauls.
He stressed that he is not going to change his plans in consequence of the international position of Latvia. "I will not abandon the show because it's my anniversary. The date is rather dark, and we're hardly ever all gather together. While we are all in good health, you need to gather. I can criticize it in Latvia, but I'm used to it. A normal person would see it differently", - quotes the composer TASS.
"I am of the opinion that every singer has the right to speak wherever he wants. And nobody has the right to forbid him to do it. If Latvian musicians are invited to the Opera or theatre in Moscow, then I see no problems and reasons for refusal. Policy nothing to do with it," added Paul. Among other things he commented on the situation with the "New wave", declaring that the contest of young talents turned into the party and return to his jury he did not intend.
