Alexandra Pakhmutova is 93 years old, she became the author of more than 450 songs, including the famous “Belovezhskaya Pushcha”.
- For me, Russia and Belarus have always been the Union, – said Alexandra Nikolaevna on the stage of the “Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk”. – We are bound by fate. During the Great Patriotic War, all the people fought in Belarus, every third inhabitant of the republic died. Our victorious happiness is common, the offensive against the enemy in the West has also passed through Belarus.
His acquaintance with Belarusian song began at the height of the ensemble “Pesnyary” under the leadership of Vladimir Mulyavin. In 1973, in Minsk, she was president of the jury of the Soviet singing competition. Winners among vocal and instrumental ensembles were announced during the competition. By unanimous decision of the jury, the first prize was awarded to the ensemble “Pesnyary”.
Thanks to “Pesnyary” and Vladimir Mulyavin, people learned and fell in love with Belarusian song. The music of “Pesnyary” made me fall in love with the Belarusian language – affectionate, melodious. Villains cannot speak such a language, believes Alexandra Pakhmutova. After the contest, Peter Masherov persuaded her to go to Belovezhskaya Pushcha, after which Alexandra Pakhmutova and Nikolai Dobronravov wrote the song “Belovezhskaya Pushcha”.
She was friends with composer Igor Mikhailovich Luchenko, who gave his talent, soul and heart to Belarusian culture. This year in the “Slavianski Bazaar in Vitebsk” the State of the Union Day will be dedicated to the work of Igor Luchenok.
Together with her husband, songwriter Nikolai Dobronravov, Alexandra Pakhmutova created dozens of immortal hits. More than one generation grew up thanks to his work.
