Dialogues. Composer Valentin Silvestrov

Valentin Silvestrov is an internationally acknowledged contemporary Ukrainian composer of classical music and regarded as one of the finest composers of his generation. Music is the meaning of life for him. Music that keeps flowing out of him. If music remains concealed, this would simply suffocate him.
