Letter 14 • 12 July 1984

July 12, 1984


Dear Hans

Thanks for your nice postcards form Moers and Geneva. In June I was at a jazz festival, too – in Riga. The Riga Jazz festival was very plain this year – mostly Latvian musicians + Chekassin, Vapirov, Lyetov and Kuryokhin’s Popular Mechanics (it was highlight). The Strange Games gave two concerts in Riga on the same days.

On June 25 we organized musical / poetic session at our loft. Sergey Lyetov and Alex Kondrashkin played their music and Arkady Dragomoshenko recited his poems simultaneously. It’s wonder but that chamber experiment was successful and everybody enjoyed it.

Sad news: in June guitarist of the Strange Games Alexander Davydov died (he was 26 years old). On July 5 rock concert on his memory was held at the Rock Club at Leningrad.–

I’ve sent you 2 LPs: The Raimonds Raubishko [Raimonds Raubiško] Trio at Riga (the Soviet version of ‘Special Edition’) and Sonata for Violin and Piano by Alfred Schnittke.

Best wishes
