Outstanding Russian Composer Tikhon Khrennikov Passes Away

The notable Russian and Soviet musician Tikhon Khrennikov has died aged 95, in Moscow.
      I am pure in the face of music and people. It is happiness for me to be a composer, play my compositions and be a pianist, Tikhon Nikolayevich once said in an interview.
      The farewell ceremony will take place in Moscow on Thursday; the composer will be laid to rest in his native Elets.
      Tikhon Khrennikov was born on June 10, 1913 in Elets town of the Orlov Province. He graduated from the Gnesins Music School and the Moscow Conservatoire. In 1939 he composed the opera In the Storm (1939), which became the first successful experience in turning the revolutionary theme into music.
      The composer is the author of eight operas, five ballets, and a great number of concerts. Tikhon Khrennikov is mostly popular for his film music, including the soundtracks for Svinarka i pastukh (Swineherd and Shepherd) (1941), V shest chasov vechera posle voyny (Six O'Clock in the Evening After the War) (1944), Poyezd idyot na vostok (The Train Goes East) (1949), Donetskie shakhtyory (Miners of the Don) (1950), Vernye druz'ya (True Friends) (1954), Gusarskaya ballada (Ballad of a Hussar) (1962), and others.
