Kata in allegorical mode, like a David Hockney work.

Gamal brought to my jetlagged mind Russian revolutionary music: lyrical and melodic, and at the same time theatrically capricious and sly.


I guess I should hide some of my thoughts and impressions not to be called a lunatic, as Prokofiev did until Stalin died.

They died the same day. There's a funny story about it.

I know several stories about Prokofiev and Stalin, but none of them is funny.

There is an anecdote that Grzegorz Fitelberg, director of Polish Radio National Symphony Orchestra came to recording studio the next day and said: "Gentelmen, please stand up. The great Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev died tonight. Let's celebrate this with a minute of silence" and after a minute he asked concertmaster "Mister Wochniak, I've heard that Stalin had also died?"

The movie The Death of Stalin is quite good.
