Q041: Do you know any other Russian musicians? Do you have plans to play in Russia? Would you like to?
A041: I know of Shoastakovic and
Prokofiov of course, but I am not that interested due to the repression
that non-conforming music faced under the old Soviet regime. Of those composers
I am most intrigued by Gubaidulina and Schnittke.
I have never been to Russia properly, just changing planes in Moscow. I am always interested to travel to somewhere new.
