At the State Kremlin Palace, at the Gala Concert, the results of the 5th International Music Festival of Frontline Song «The Road to Yalta», which was held in Moscow from April 29 to May 2, were summed up.
Participants from 15 countries sang Soviet songs about the Great Patriotic War in their native languages. The winners were determined by the jury, which included Honored Artists of the Russian Federation Denis Maidanov, Kai Metov, Zara, Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation for International Cultural Cooperation Mikhail Shvydkoy, Minister of Resorts and Tourism of Crimea Vadim Volchenko, President of the National Research Center «Kurchatov Institute» Mikhail Kovalchuk. The jury for the fifth time was headed by People’s Artist of the RSFSR Lev Leshchenko.
One of the winners of the competition, the Greek singer Ioannis Kofopoulos, who sang the song «Three Tankers», was personally awarded a special prize from the government of Crimea — a certificate for a week’s stay in one of the best resort hotels in the historical center of Yalta, in a room overlooking the Black Sea.
I have an important mission — to convey to the participants of the festival the whole aroma of the flowering of spring Yalta, all the sun of Crimea and the warmth of the Crimeans. We must pay tribute to the professional music editing of the festival. Performers, voices, songs are combined very well, unconditionally, even though they are sung in Greek, Mongolian, Chinese, English. And yet, we miss you! It’s good that the festival has such a huge audience and the most honorable venue in Moscow, but still, I’m sure that in the near future we will hold it in our native Yalta— said Vadim Volchenko.
