The War and Peace Opera Presented By Larry Coryell
(Published: June 03, 2015)

After sold-out world premiere in Slovenia last year, the Godfather of fusion Larry Coryell brought "War and Peace, The Opera, based on War and Peace written by Leo Tolstoy, to Russia. On 29th May, at one of the biggest guitar festivals in Europe, the "World of Guitar", a new and vibrant production by Larry Coryell, featuring "The Russian Philharmonic Orchestra", from Moscow, along with a jazz trio of Russia's most prominent guitarist, Roman Miroshnichenko, Serbian classical guitarist Nenad Stephanovich and Slovenian Academy of music Ljubljana choir was well received in Kaluga Philharmonic Hall.

Larry Coryell: - "This work is intended to touch listeners' hearts with the simple but often-misunderstood message about the sanctity of peace. By "peace" I mean to say not just the absence of violence but a pro-active statement that means: peace is the way. Like so many operas, this work is of a tragic nature. It is the story of Russia's struggle and eventual victory (at great cost) with Napoleon's voracious armed forces in the early 19th century. My heart requests nothing more than just that . . . to bring happiness to whomever hears this, and thus to spur the forward progression of humanity."

Roman Miroshnichenko: - "Every time I play with Larry the only thing I can say to myself is: how he can be so incredibly brilliant and overfull of ideas! Larry definitely is one of the legendary guitarists who has influenced all other guitarists, as well as my own playing."
