Valery Gavrilin was born in the northern Russian city of Vologda on August 17, 1939 into a teachers' family. When Valery was twelve he entered a music school. His musical life started in Vologda but flourished in St.Petersburg. In 1953 Valery Gavrilin moved to Leningrad (now St.Petersburg) and linked his musical career with that city.

He graduated from the Leningrad Conservatoire as composer and folklorist. His main interest concerned vocal music. One of the composer's prominent works was "The Three German Books" for male voice and piano to the verse of Heinrich Heine. Another was "The Russian Book" for mezzo-soprano and piano to Russian folk texts. Valery achieved great renown creating his masterpiece - the Choral Symphony.

He was the recipient of numerous State Prizes. A rare gift for melody made Gavrilin an excellent composer of songs. In 1959-1983 Valery Gavrilin composed more than 50 songs and romances. The composer thought that thanks to the presence of words vocal music was easier for the audience to understand and that was crucial for him. Valery Gavrilin composed several operas and oratorios. One of his three ballets, "Anyuta", was written at the request of the Russian ballet stars Yekaterina Maximova and Vladimir Vasiliev and ran for years in the Bolshoi theatre.

His last work was music for the play "Woe to Wit" by the 19th - century Russian writer Alexander Griboedov. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
