The capital of Turkmenistan hosted a memorable concert event "Songs of Frontline Love" dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. The event, whose guests of honor were war and labor veterans, was held by the Russian Diplomatic Mission and the Ministry of Culture of Turkmenistan.
Musicians of the State Symphony Orchestra (conductor R. Klychev) and vocalists of the State Choir performed soulful songs of the Great Patriotic War on the stage of the Makhtumkuli National Musical Drama Theater.
Especially reverent was the performance of a lyric composition about love at the front on the verses of M. Ptushenko - the usual 20-year-old Ashgabat resident, who died in 1944, leaving a notebook with the author's poems. S. Ekimov, composer of the St. Petersburg State Conservatory named after N. A. Rimsky-Korsakov, wrote the music especially for the concert program.
On June 22, the organizers also arranged a screening of the feature film "Podolsk Cadets" at the "Ashkhabad" movie theater.
On the occasion of the memorable date, the widow of the honored worker of arts of Turkmenistan and laureate of the State Prize named after Makhtumkuli M. Mamedova G. A. Mamedova presented the Russian Embassy with a painting of her husband dedicated to the children of the siege.
