Within the framework of the VI international festival of arts "Sounds of dutar" named after Nury Halmamedov, which will be held this fall in Moscow, a competition for composers to create musical works based on the poems of the Turkmen poet Gurbannazar Ezizov has been announced.
The competition is aimed at familiarizing with the work of modern composers and popularizing the poetic heritage of one of the most important Turkmen poets of the twentieth century – Gurbannazar Ezizov.
The composer Nury Halmamedov and the poet Gurbannazar Ezizov were linked by a strong friendship, closeness of attitudes and joint creativity. As peers, they both tragically passed away early in life, but left behind their creativity. The crown of their creative tandem can be considered a vocal-symphonic poem "Memory of fallen heroes in the great Patriotic war".
For more information about the competition regulations, please visit the official website of the festival.
Well-known composers and vocal teachers from Russia, Turkmenistan and the United States are invited to participate in the competition.
