Description of Style

Using the classical music language, rock and jazz, using the classical texts by Shakespeare, Puschkin and modern authors, Dreznin tries - no matter whether in Vienna, Moscow or Florida - to create music theatre that portray his dreams and nightmares in a suitable form for the public. As a hopeless romantic, he believes in eternal values. As a cynic raised in totalitarianism, he laughs about the modern world order, politics, war greed - and about himself. Broadway with a brain is his obsession.
Sergei Dreznin, 1996
