Thanks so much for sending this tonight. What an amazing idea, to already now hold a concert there. Surely it came from Gergiev. I cannot tell you how much I admire this giant of a human being. He is utterly amazing, as a person, as a musician, as a bringer of such amazing events to the world.
Yet he is attacked -- attacked for being proud of his country, for admiring his country's president. How utterly soulness!! Remember the concert which he conducted years ago, in front of the ruined administrative building of the South Ossetian capital after the Georgian attack. That was also so moving.
Must watch: concert at liberated Palmya https://www.rt.com/news/
