I would not like to hurt other small towns and festivals, but the Nesvizh festival “Muses of Nesvizh” certainly stands out. The festival is a pearl in the collection of the National orchestra of symphonic and popular music under the guidance of Mikhail Finberg. The festival is very special for some strange reason. Maybe it is due to the ancient castle, which makes every sound unhacked or to the narrow streets of the town that make you parade instead of slouching. Oh, no, this must be the mixture of the past and the present.
Real culture never grows on fresh asphalt, and if it does, it sounds like cheap substitutes, and it is against this false culture that Mikhail Finberg struggles like Don Quixote fought against windmills. He feels strong enough to show those pop-trash addicts their place in the musical hierarchy. The participants and guests of the festival all agree that the depth of the country has managed to raise the general level of musical taste, so the struggle is quite successful unlike that of Don Quixote. The peculiarity of the Nesvizh festival was specifically mentioned by Deputy Culture Minister Vladimir Matveichuk.
By the way, the district administration of Nesvizh decided to confer the title “Honorary Citizen of Nesvizh” on Mikhail Finberg during the recent festival.
This time the festival celebrated the talent of four muses that patronize theater, history, painting and music. The forum was opened with a show “Parphen and Alexandra” by Nikolai Manokhin, a sure hit of the National Yanka Kupala Academic Theater staged by Valery Rayevsky.
The composer Jan Goland, whose 260th birthday anniversary was marked during the festival, became the remote star that was shining on all participants in the festival. The composer spent many years of his prolific life in Nesvizh.
