About the conductor

"...he hears the score perfectly, revealing even obscured rhythmic and tonal connections. Alim's conducting is filled with deep meaning and logic. In his interpretations, Alim follows the best models, but he does not repeat stamps, but presents the music in his own vision. Such a conductor is a godsend for a composer."
Boris Tishchenko
