Voronezh region, Russia
e are the people of the 21st century. What do we know about the war?
War … What is a small word! And how much blood, pain, tears is associated with this word!
Years have been passing…Those who witnessed bloody battles are passing away. We are, the young generation, can only learn all these events from fiction.
Songs are a lyrical record of time. They reflect the history of the country, the pain and joy of individuals and the whole nation. The song is a valuable historical source, cultural heritage, a monument to the heroic and creative defenders of the Fatherland. The fate of songs is closely connected with the fate of people.
75 years have passed since the Victory Day, but the songs of distant years are heard today, shaking the hearts of all mankind.
The idea was born to create “the Crane Song” project, which is dedicated to songwriters of the war years.
In the center of the composition there is a piano, as a symbol of songwriting. Here is the author who is touching the key … and the melody that was born under the roar of the gun, under the whistle of bullets, under the loud cheers of Victory sounds.
But the piano is not simple, it is a reservoir. From pressing a key, a cascade of water appears. These are human tears, tears of sorrow and joy.
Do you want to listen to the songs of the war years? Then you need to press another key and you can sing along your favorite tunes.
Do you want to be eyewitnesses of battles? We press the key … it takes us to that distant dashing time, and we find ourselves in that military events, as the frames of the chronicle are shown on the piano lid.
Why did we choose the white color of the composition? This is an association with dead souls who turn into cranes and fly away to heaven. The moving birds create the music of the wind … and a “crane song” arises. They rise so high to become guardian angels of peace above the Earth.
The arch divides the composition into two worlds. Behind the arch there is a green meadow and a forest. This is the color of life. The swaying plants of a flowering meadow symbolize Russian wide spaces, and the trees and bushes the wealth of our country.
For our life, people have given their lives. So rejoice and do good!
