A memorial bas-relief to composer Georgiy Sviridov has been opened in Moscow

The opening ceremony of the memorial bas-relief of Georgy Sviridov was held on September 20, 2018 in Moscow at 36 Bolshaya Gruzinskaya street, building 3.

The composer lived in this house from 1968 to 1998. Most of the guests who delivered speech at the ceremony, agreed that George Sviridov immortalization should have been effected much earlier than 20 years after his death, but now, thanks to the efforts of the Russian Musical Union, this was finally done at the proper level.
