Petersburg composer, pianist, Honored Artist.

Anatoly Kalvarsky — composer, pianist and bandleader. In 1956 he graduated from the Department of theoretical and compositional music school at the Leningrad Conservatory. First of all, became known as an ensemble pianist Orestes Kandata (1956-60) in 1960-62 and 1968-73 was the music director of the State Variety Orchestra of Azerbaijan.

In 1975-77 he was artistic director and conductor of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Leningrad radio and television. Later devoted himself entirely to composition (pop songs, music for theater.)

Anatoly Kalvarsky known as the author of music for films, theater and circus performances. His songs are performed by many famous artists. His professional service in the arts, he is always founded on a sense of dignity and natural musical taste. From a young age, these qualities were his artistic credo. In all post-Soviet territory jazz bands regularly performed vocal and instrumental works by Anatoly Kalvarskaya. In the seventies of the last century led to the Azerbaijan State Variety Orchestra. But they know it, and in many other countries. With fellow musicians, he traveled from west to east and from north to south, a lot of countries. Here's how to speak about it in the press: "The St. Petersburg composer, honored art in the music space, domestic art more than a name. This phenomenon, which is a brand, it's a phenomenal range of music, which is characterized by creative originality and indispensability. Instead, Anatoly Kalvarskaya can not be anyone but himself by Anatoly Kalvarskaya! "

With my highly respected composer, so to speak, "the last of mohicas" I was lucky enough to work. Together with poetessoy Ninoy Zagrebelny we worked on songs that are written Anatoly Kalvarsky, one of which was performed in the Concert Hall "October" at a gala concert "Spring Romance" is the song "Still I love." And I hope that we shall do together and I will do these wonderful lyrical, jazz songs in his concert.
