Vladimir Fainer




Biography



 

Biography
 

Vladimir Fainer.

Was born in 1966 in Kharkov, where is living to this day.

I studied composing on my own.

My interest in the theory and history of music has always been specific.

As far as my memory serves – I never took any great interest in modern genres.

But ancient music was different. During my youth a lot of things were released on gramophone records, and in our city musical library there was an extensive collection of appropriate scores and textbooks.

In the process of profound study of the subject the my attention was focused in the depths of history: from Viennese Classic - to Bach, from Bach - to the foremen Renaissance, from them - to the middle Ages and ancient songs.

I collected everything accessible on these topics by small portions of information and studied it carefully. And not only did I study this, it was my intimate world.

At the age of sixteen I began attending Orthodox church services and was baptized.

I graduated from the Kharkov music college in 1988 majoring in trumpet.

Later I had to play brass and keyboard instruments and to do sound recording and computer processing of soundtracks.

But my favorite thing to do has always been studying ancient scores and musical-theoretical sources.

First compositions appeared in 1994 г and were signed by a pseudonym.

In 1994 - 1997 was a period of cooperation with the chorus of the church of. St.Ilia in Krasnodar.

In 2005 I got to know the choir of the Pokrov-monastery in Kharkov. Precentor Anna Stsheglova has showed a deep interest in my creativity, and since then the repertoire of this chorus includes practically all my compositions.

The result of our cooperation was the publication of three compact discs.

Details can be found at the website of the chorus http://chorus.kh.ua/

In the autumn of 2005 I created an author's site http://fainer.com.ua/ 

I began publishing my articles in the magazine "Precentor work" http://www.regentskoedelo.org/

My compositions have received a wide circulation and at present they are performed in many cities and temples of Ukraine, Russia and Byelorussia.

The "ginger" of the stylistic approach which has appeared as a result of long-term immersing in the world of ancient music is the combination of Greek Slavic melodiousness and structure of European polyphonic schools.

The polyphony opens to the listener, as sincere, intimate speech transmitting ascetically - accurate, sober-minded veneration for the Sacrament.
