Album Notes
Essence of virtuosic cello encores captured live. “Encores” performed as encores. Real audience and unmodified sound. Temptations of post-concert excitement with sparkling passages and delicious melodies shared with their audience for standing ovations.

Message - "This is the Truth"

This is a palindrome.
If you read the following message as it is written, it will make you feel angry.
Read it backwards one line at a time starting with “This is what is real”, and it will make you feel happy.

This is the truth
If we turn things upside-down
Classical Music is not the best music in the world
I would be lying to YOU if I said that
Classical Music has a great future ahead and
The beauty of classical music will save the world and
That our governments will support arts in our schools and
That we - musicians - will be as rich as Bill Gates
That Classical Music will be always appreciated
That YOUR children will be smart enough to learn and love truly beautiful arts
And I am convinced of this because I know YOU, and I am so sure
YOU will never betray your positions
Stupidity and laziness are in YOUR nature
Under any circumstance I REJECT the thought that
YOU are the greatest and smartest audience ever
There is no doubt in my mind that
Something bad is going to happen to Classical Music because of YOU
I will never believe that
YOUR ovations are a manifestation of your intellectual effort and
YOU are not smart and educated enough to understand Classical Music
It is a ridiculous statement that
Classical Music is an intellectual stimulus and a carrier of an emotional balance
YOU must remember that
Whether you like it or not
This is what is real

Ruslan Biryukov

You should know that I actually think exactly the opposite. To find the truth of how I really feel, be sure to read the above in its entirety, then again backwards, one line at a time, starting with “This is what is real”.
