I am writing to you, Volodya, from the Garden Ring, Where shattered waters pour from the sky.
Everything in the world expects a legal end, And only the weather does not end ... Yuri Vizbor, 1982.
The figure of Vladimir Vysotsky is one of the most striking in Russian culture of the XX century. The role of the singer, actor and poet and his influence on several generations of our compatriots can hardly be overestimated. The outgoing year 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of his death.
In the year of this sad anniversary, we invite you, dear friends, on a tour of Moscow, during which we will touch upon his extraordinary biography and multifaceted creativity. During our trip, we will visit those places in Moscow that are most closely associated with the life of Vladimir Semenovich and his associates.
At Bolshoi Karetny, we will remember the poet's youth and the friendly circle in which his first songs were performed. The monument on Strastnoy Boulevard will remind you of the numerous concerts of Vladimir Semenovich in the seventies and the unique phenomenon of "tape culture". Near the memorial plaque on M. Gruzinskaya opposite the Catholic cathedral, we will talk about such a little-studied topic in his work as a religious one. The monument to Bulat Okudzhava on the Arbat, Sukharevskaya Square, the Taganka Theater, and other not so famous places in Moscow associated with the biography of both Vysotsky and his contemporaries and associates - B. Okudzhava, Y. Vizbor and others will not be left without our attention. ...
In addition to the tour guide, we will be accompanied by an experienced musician who will help us remember songs. Thus, we will compose a kind of musical letter from our XXI century. in the sixties and seventies of the last century, when Vysotsky's songs became for many people a discovery, spiritual support and a driving force for life ...
