"Let's admit – the Opera came from Italy... These are origins. But why are Italians still considered the standard? How are they different?
I am already in the Institute passionately studied, disturbed the teachers, trying to understand. And what is interesting – someone starts to show, tell, but sing – and I hear, they do not sing like Italians! Hear the difference! The sound is not the same. The teacher tells me that he has an Italian school - but that's not it! Different! And this teacher becomes uninteresting to me, he's lying.
These torments ended with the fact that in Moscow we got to the great tenor Vyacheslav Nikolaevich Osipov. Here he really studied with the Italians, and when he sang – I heard that he sings like an Italian. He was able to explain, to direct, to get to the nuances.
I learned all the vocal apparatus, began to get down – and changed everything! Articulation, phonetics, breathing, I had voice breaking. I was taught as a baritone, even offered a bass. But I wanted to sing tenor. And by chance we were offered to go abroad – and there we have seriously started to do.
I didn't grow up. But I was born and knew that I would sing. I sang everywhere – in the garden, at school, at competitions. While in a quiet hour in kindergarten, everyone was asleep, I was dragged to rehearsals... Then I studied at music school on a violin, very much loved operetta theater at us in Novouralsk, it is some fairy tale... Long dreamed to sing in the operetta, but parents gave a choice of three professions – the riverman, the pilot or the railwayman. They did not imagine that there is such a profession – a singer. I went to the riverman, but the dream remained. He studied at the boatman and understood that it is not my everything...
As a result, he graduated from school as a mechanic-repairman, worked at the chemical plant, but fate decreed that one day I went to the hospital and lay in the same room with the chief Director of the theater (let the earth be down to him). He liked me – sang, cheered. And when he was discharged, he said: Peter Ivanovich, take at least a tire iron. He says, call. I called. He's "audition Tomorrow." "WHAT AUDITION?!"Artists of the choir." Came – preparation premieres "Dutchwoman", still remember. I was "thrown" on the stage, and I stayed there. I really loved this theater, I really wanted to sing! But he did not accept any high art, he could not stand Opera at all... To fellow students-"opernik" I spoke: "Shut up, I can't listen to it!"...
Then I entered the Institute as an artist of musical Comedy, because there is no music in drama, I was bored. Wanted to sing musical Comedy, but realized that where I "Shine" only a specific role of the second plan, no growth... You can't get out of there... And from despair became take an interest in Opera. Dislike. Sitting, watching, thinking: "what muck this your jellied fish..."but I understood – it's interesting, it's necessary.
And then at the Institute I met with Oksana. She influenced me. And I heard Pavarotti and I lit up – I'll learn to sing like that! I'll understand how he sings and why, what is the beauty of such singing? How is it different from ours? Why is it both accessible and incomprehensible? And gradually the classic "opened"... Gradually I began to understand and love her...»
