“While Pushkin lasts in Russia...” Svetlana Kryuchkova read David Samoilov’s poems in Brussels

Famous Russian actress, People's Artist of Russia Svetlana Kryuchkova gave concert at the Russian Centre in Brussels. To the guitar accompaniment of her son Alexander, a graduate of the Brussels Royal Conservatory, she read the most famous, strong and deep poems of the famous Soviet poet, who, like many of his peers in 1941, went to the front from the student bench, David Samoilov.

Samoilov’s poetry is distinguished by the depth of philosophical comprehension of life and the “high simplicity” of expressing the most complex feelings. Subtle irony and humor give his poems a special appeal and make them attractive for any age.

Svetlana Kryuchkova’s performances are always a theatrical journey, immersion in which occurs instantly - from the first words of the actress, and musical accompaniment greatly enhances this effect.

Not surprisingly, there were no empty seats in the concert hall of the Russian Centre. Svetlana Kryuchkova promised to come to Brussels again and bring new interesting performances.
