about this painting:
Playing on the roof
Looking at Night Musician painting by Leonid Afremov, you cannot help but note its resemblance to the famous painting Chagall's work called Green Violinist. However, Leonid filled his work with a richer palette of colors - here we see a violet – in this color is painted the sky in Leonid's image – yellow, red and many other diverse shades. The tongues of flame produced by the friction of the bow on the violin strings make the painting incendiary in the literal sense of this word. It seems they can even ignite the night. Also, the fire that we see in the windows of the houses snugly located on the hillock adds some incendiary to the painting.
The violinist himself is dressed quite simply and without any frills - he has an ordinary cap, a white shirt and a rather shabby waistcoat, he reminds some merchant who, in his spare time, decided to devote himself to his favorite occupation - playing the violin. He obviously enjoys it, because we see on his lips a semblance of a smile. It seems that he is ready to play all night long and he is heard by the whole city. This gentle melody is smoothly spreading throughout the city, pouring to the ears of those preparing to retire for the night. Perhaps it may be a kind of accompaniment to the tale that tells the mother to the children before going to bed.
We hope that you will also appreciate this incendiary melody not being able to resist the desire to acquire this delightful masterpiece of the famous artist.
Growing in the street
Although our roof violinist looks rather elderly it seems that he simply lacked some passion or something else to become a professional musician playing on the grand concerts and scenes but there is a number of famous musicians who wasn’t above singing with street musicians even being at the height of their fame. Let’s name a few of them:
- Steven Tyler could not restrain himself – when walking along the Moscow Arbat, the singer heard a familiar melody and decided to perform in a duet with a street To his credit the unknown performer did not lose his head and played with pleasure and even sang with the legendary rocker.
- A truly talented musician does not need such gadgets as amplifiers and an army of sound engineers. He just need to go out with two friends who will take a couple of instruments and sing. Namely so did Zaz at the start of her musical
- The Australian musician DUB FX cultivated the concept of “solo artist”. His musical activity began with traveling around the cities and towns performing in the streets to the accompaniment of ... his own voice.
