The orchestra is great. The wonderful conductor is my friend Alexander Sladkovsky. I consider him to be one of the best conductors of Russia. It’s very easy to play with him. He feels music perfectly. He knows jazz in a great way, as for classic music – I’m out of words. It’s not fearful to go with him from the ship to that ball. Because of circumstances I had to stay in Moscow. Besides, the airplane delayed, we were late. Though, with such conductor, orchestra which sounds brilliantly and everything sounds perfectly in this hall.
