Vladimir Putin wishes a happy 80th birthday to Artistic Director of the St Petersburg State Philharmonic Orchestra Yury Temirkanov

December 10, 2018

Vladimir Putin wished a happy 80th birthday to professor, People’s Artist of the USSR, recipient of two State Prizes, Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the St Petersburg State Philharmonic Orchestra Yury Temirkanov.

The message of greetings reads, in part:

“It would not be an exaggeration to say that everyone who values and loves classical music and takes pride in the unique traditions of the national orchestra-conducting school knows about your unique and generous talent.

While heading the best symphony orchestras in the world, you are making the cultural life of Russia and the world brighter and more packed and promoting wonderful educational and charitable projects.

And, of course, you invariably provide audiences with unforgettable experiences during encounters with lofty art.”
