Russian Choir Conquers Moscow, Berlin and New York With Striking Songs! #Victory75 #VictoryDay

Something positive and inspiring, as a continuation of our extended #Victory75 marathon!

A beautiful, energetic and striking compilation from Victory Day open air performances by the Russian Turetsky Choir in Moscow, Berlin and New York in 2019. This is what it looked like when there was on COVID quarantine!

This is the choir I told you about in previous post: The Turetsky Choir Sings the Legendary KATYUSHA online! #ImmortalRegimentOnline #БессмертныйПолкОнлайн.

It consists of two unique world-famous bands: the Turetsky Male Choir and the all-female group Soprano, who sometimes perform together.

This is a compilation of three concerts for May 9, Victory Day 2019. Lots of great and famous Russian songs of war and peace, love and victory. The video switches repeatedly between three concerts, all performed on legendary outdoor stages, carefully chosen for the occasion:

1. Moscow: Belarussky Train Station Square

This is where the first Victory Train from Berlin had arrived on May 10, 1945. You can see and read about it here: 3 Unbelievable Stories & Amazing Historic WWII Videos! 1st Red Square Victory Day Parade; Nazi generals ‘walk of shame’ through Moscow; 1st Victory Train from Berlin! 

It was also a famous backdrop of the Soviet film ‘Belarussky Station’ about the reunion of several WWII vets, with its legendary song, ‘We Need One Victory.’ Notice how public reacts to songs!

2. Berlin: Gendarmenmarkt Square

It is the site of the Berlin Concert Hall and the same square on which the legendary 1st concert of the Red Army Choir took place in 1945, shortly after the Victory over Hitler. Huge crowds of Berliners gathered on and around the square to listen to that hit concert, many perched on ledges, steps and tops of buildings. The scene is closely recreated, down to crowds, people perched on ledges of nearby buildings and straddling statues surrounding the square.

3. New York: Battery Park

If you are at all familiar with New York, I don’t need to tell you what kind of place this is! One of the nicest spots in Manhattan, with lovely water views. Widely thought of as the place from which the ‘American liberty’ began. You can see the Statue of Liberty in the background.

Overall the Turetsky Choir did Victory Day concerts in over 12 countries worldwide (possibly more, not sure of the latest stats). Of course, nothing this year, due to COVID. They’ll probably resume next year.

Listen to these sparkling concerts – I think you’ll enjoy this compilation, as do I! 

 

**This post was originally written and compiled on May 9, 2020. I thought I’d post it soon after. Due to the release of my new SERIES 3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS and other Lada Ray Patreon events I only am getting around to posting it in July. However, the beautiful video concert, combining all three concerts in one, has been taken down by YouTube, saying there is a copyright strike against it. (A typical thing that might happen during Mercury retrograde.)

I thought uniting three very significant locales in three major capitals in one concert was a great way to present it. But since it’s not available, check out other videos I found on YT.

This is a 30 min part of the same Berlin concert – it gives you a good idea of the whole thing (too bad no whole concert is available any more):

As a bonus, this is a jubilee Turetsky Choir and Soprano show in Moscow (not related to Victory Day, but showcasing their other work):

It’s actually good that at this point at least Germany officially preserves the memory of what was. I guess enough Germans still remember the truth, as more of them were touched by the most brutal war this human civilization ever knew.

Meantime others, for political gain and just because they serve the darkness, are trying with all their might to re-write history.

Something many in Europe want desperately to forget or deny!

Along with many other things, such as: the only successful mass escape from a Nazi German death camp Sobibor located in Poland, by Soviet officers held there, who were worked and starved to death. Many perished in the escape, but many survived. They split into smaller groups to maximize the chance of survival. The groups that went through Belarus joined the partisan underground fight, while the group that went through Poland all perished. Why? Local Poles were giving up the officers who tried to hide FOR MONEY to the Nazis, and they all were killed.

Also, Stanislav in his great-uncle’s story tells what his great-uncle witnessed while his echelon was passing through Poland. Poles pretended to hug Soviet soldiers on platforms as liberators, but then the corpses of stabbed in the back Red Army servicemen were discovered. See stanislavs.org for more!

Putin Speaks on #Victory75 Anniversary & the Kremlin Regiment Parade! #Moscow #Russia #May9, 2020

Due to COVID-19, the very last moment and with a heavy heart Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a postponement of the main Victory Day celebrations, including the annual parade, foreign heads of state visit and the Immortal Regiment march. Instead, many activities moved online, including the Immortal Regiment march, which lasted online something like 12 hours.

I also do my part, and I hope you’ve been able to visit our

Very touching, although without the usual crowds and celebrations much is missing. But no worries! After it all this blows over, Russia will have proper parades and Immortal Regiment, and it will be glorious! I’m having a special post on   in a few days, when I’ll tell you about possible dates – it’s a secret for now, but one of these dates will pan out and we’ll know soon enough!

Touching performance by the choir of the Odessa Russian Orthodox (Russkaya Pravoslaovnaya) congregation and Maxim Tkachuk, the 12-year-old orphan singer from western Ukraine I told you about in previous post (Tajikistan Children’s Flashmob Performing Russian WWII Song Smuglyanka Goes Viral!). The compassionate Odessa people offered support to Maxim and his caregivers, and helped them resettle in Odessa, where they will be more protected against prosecution.

The singing by the choir is mixed with the Red Army singing Den Pobedi in the background and is accompanied by actual 1941-45 footage of WWII and victory day chronicles from Moscow and other Russian towns. I shared some of this historic footage in previous big report: 3 Unbelievable Stories & Amazing Historic WWII Videos!

They also show last year’s Victory Day parade in Kiev, which I am ambivalent about (the symbolism there is questionable at best, but perhaps they have to show that, being in Ukraine and all). Watch – Den Pobedi by the Odessa Pravoslavny choir. The actual choir singing starts at 1:16:

Russian ship returning from duty in Syria made a stopover in Alexandroupolis, Greece, where Russian marines were surprised by enormous crowds that lined up the roads, deafening cheer and enthusiastic clapping. I hear it was in stark contrast to how the US/NATO troops were met in Greece just a year prior. And Greece happens to be a EU and NATO country. Watch to the end, note the loud cheer and never-ending crowds!

Description under video (not mine) – I don’t know who is behind this channel, but it makes sense:

“Russian Navy ship on a way from Syria, after fighting REAL Islamist terrorists, had made a stop in the Greek city of Alexandroupolis. People of the city had found out and insisted on greeting Russian Marines as true heroes. Almost entire city had gathered up to loudly applaud, cheer and welcome a column of them marching on the main street… A most stark contrast to the “welcome” NATO soldiers had received in the exact same city just a year ago. Common working people are not so stupid and brainwashed, to know and see what NATO is, whose tool it is and who really had and still are financing terrorism and spreads hatred and wars all over the globe… and what country is actually fighting it. No wonder the ruling western elites and the globalists hate Russia so much and doing all they can so to vilify Russia and massively obstruct Trump in every possible way, in his effort of building a friendly relationship with Russia. PS. They are the elite Navy ground assault strike force. Translated from Russian as Navy Infantry (Marines). In Russia Marines wear Navy uniforms and use a Navy flag. They also carry with them in this video the latest Russian automatic assault rifles, AK-12.”

The world-renowned Turetsky Choir, with rare and striking voices ranging from basso profundo to male soprano, has done for several years the worldwide Victory Day tours called ‘Songs of War, Peace & Victory.’ They performed on major open air stages in Berlin, Vienna, New York, Toronto, Beijing, Madrid, Prague, Minsk and Moscow. This year their highly anticipated Songs of Victory tour got cancelled because of COVID-19. They decided to perform online instead. They’ve been posting their performances and today I am offering you one of them.

Tajikistan Children’s Flashmob Performing Russian WWII Song Smuglyanka Goes Viral!

Children from a small Tajik town’s daycare “Gulshan” and their teachers got together and made a cute, full of heart and humor mini-film.

Plot: A day care teacher is trying to teach the children to sing a Russian children’s song, but it doesn’t work. When kids go for a nap, she dozes off too, but that’s when all the fun begins. Kids quietly get up and begin performing a serious adult song Smuglyanka, from the blockbuster Soviet film ‘Only Old Men Go to Battle,’ depicting relationships between male and female flying officers during the WWII.

A local repairman hears the children struggling with the tune and magically adds the music and Russian uniforms. The choir performs the song and then more magic happens, as it seems the whole town, by osmosis, begins to sing. It ends with honoring a local Red Army/Great Patriotic War vet and laying flowers to the monument commemorating those who perished defending the country – a touching ceremony. That part takes place to the tune of another legendary song ‘Den Pobedi’ (Victory Day). And in the end we learn that the vet who inspired the whole thing, died after the video was finished, 9 days before the actual May 9th Victory Day.

The video made in 2018 gathered millions of views on the internet. In the end we can see what went into the making of this mini-film, including the sewing of uniforms and rehearsals.

Very touching and charming video – watch:

Smuglyanka:

One of the most popular Russian songs pertaining to the Great Patriotic War era, and one of the most performed Soviet songs. It is a story of a Red Army officer who falls in love with a pretty, dark haired Moldavian girl. Made world-famous by the film ‘Only Old Men Go to Battle.’

This year, Smuglyanka has become one of the symbols of Victory Day 75, after a western Ukrainian 12-year-old orphan Maxim Tkachuk won international competition in London with this song. After returning home, he was attacked on social media by various western Ukraine nationalists and ukro-nazis, ostracized in his local village and his grandmother – his guardian – lost her job. That generated a major backlash all over Ukraine, where people began creating Smuglyanka flashmobs (thus proving that Ukraine indeed is alive – read my article: No, the REAL Ukraine Is NOT Dead & Never Will Be! VICTORY DAY, No Matter the Threats).

Tajikistan:

Ex-Soviet republic, currently a separate country. After USSR breakup doesn’t have direct border with Russia. Religion: Muslim. Language: Tajiki, but Russian is widely spoken and studied. Recently Tajikistan has been begging Russia to send more Russian teachers, so the young generation would not forget Russian language.

Tajikistan is a country in Central Asia surrounded by Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for rugged mountains, popular for hiking and climbing. The Fann Mountains, near the national capital Dushanbe, have snow-capped peaks that rise over 5,000 meters. The range encompasses the Iskanderkulsky Nature Refuge, a notable bird habitat named for Iskanderkul, a turquoise lake formed by glaciers.
