How did you change into the producer of the Pink Military Choir?
Our firm had already produced many albums and movies of the well-known Bolshoi Theater in Russia. Then my colleague, Willy Wenger, wished to provide an album of the Alexandrov Ensemble which had not recorded since lengthy. We have been on the daybreak of 1990, and the political panorama in Russia had modified, giving option to non-public firms initiatives. That is how our French manufacturing firm was in a position to license the music rights of this prestigious ensemble. Then produce authentic recordings. The primary venture we proposed to the Pink Military Choir Ensemble, then directed by Victor Feodorov, met an enormous success. From the start, our collaboration has been marked by success.
As for the Bolshoi, I didn’t wish to cease with simply recording music, and so we ventured into movies. Then lastly we determined to convey again the Pink Military Choir on stage since they hadn’t come to Europe shortly.
You’re the head of FGL PRODUCTIONS which have produced a number of totally different artists, the polish ensemble Mazowsze, many rock bands, even classical music with the Bolshoi Theater. Why a lot variety?
I feel that in life, an individual who solely reads philosophy books or cookbooks would miss out on many features of literature. It is the identical for music! Typically it is simpler to handle 100 artists of the Pink Military than a younger singing woman.
What are you able to convey to Russian artists?
The Russians have a stable formation. Whether or not it’s the Bolshoi, regional artists or the Pink Military Choir Ensemble, all these Russian artists have an unimaginable palette that’s the results of an unlimited quantity of labor. I’ve not but met a choir that has this dimension. I’ve labored with many artists, however the Pink Military Choir Ensemble is precision mechanics. Nonetheless, essentially the most stunning piece of jewelry must be showcased. We convey our sense of design and our French contact into the Pink Military Choir, and all of the worldwide artists we’ve been in a position to work with.
What concerning the USA or England?
We have been scheduled to carry out on the London Palladium in April 2019, however we ran out of time to finalize all of the formalities essential to carry out within the UK. But it surely’s one among my targets to convey the Pink Military Choirs again to England the place the general public at all times greets them with nice fervour. The identical for the USA from the place we obtain many messages of friendship. Music permits an actual dialogue between peoples. It is the easiest way to make folks perceive one another regardless of the totally different cultures. And above all, when troopers sing, the kids can sleep in peace!
