Russians conquer American musical Olympus. For a long time, it seemed to many that the American music industry and full houses around the world were too tough for immigrants from the USSR. It turned out that the music and songs of Russian performers can break through to the top of the most prestigious ratings. And some musicians may be seriously interested in the most demanding record studios, and getting to them is already a sign that the artist has made it. Today we have collected 5 stories of musicians and performers who came to the USA from the countries of the former USSR and achieved worldwide recognition.

  1. Anna Netrebko

Classical music performers are perhaps the most successful and sought after in the United States. Opera diva Anna Netrebko has long earned the status of the most sought-after and respected Russian singer. Her voice delights millions of viewers, and her excellent stage performances force us to reconsider our ideas about truly high-quality music. The artist’s personal collection includes a huge variety of awards. Her performances were applauded by the best halls in the world. More recently, Manon Lescaut was performed with success in New York. Netrebko performed the main role.

2. Ian maxine

Cellist and composer Ian Maxine gathers halls of admirers in Europe and the United States; he has joint work with Andrea Bocelli, Sting, Barry Gibb from the BGG, Beach Boys, Gloria Estefan, Snoop Dogg.

Jan Maxine was born in Peteburgh, moved to the USA in 17 years. It was then, the musician confesses, that he understood the significance of music and cello in his life. The key point was working in the New World Symphony orchestra conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas in Miami.

The path to success was not easy. Maxine quit his job in the orchestra and literally started all over again as a soloist. And after a successful European tour with a debut concert in Paris and recording a new solo album with his own compositions. The musician admits that he saw that not tens, not hundreds, but tens of thousands of people in different parts of the globe were enjoying his music.

Fans claim that Maxine amazes them with her own style - eclecticism in a completely new format. From the music of Bach to Russian folk songs, and from Balkan rhythms to Arabic flamenco.

“I’ve been playing the cello since I was 6 years old, and the guitar since an even earlier age, but I’ve never been considered a child prodigy. They said that the boy was extremely talented, but lazy. The fact is that at that time I did not yet have such a passion for classical music, or focus on it. I was interested in a lot of things at the same time, I loved blues and jazz. Let's put it this way: between the ages of 10 and 13, I spent a lot more time practicing blues guitar than cello. This was at a time when all my classmates were working 4-5 hours a day and preparing for competitions. At the conservatory they beat it out of me, they mocked me, they laughed at me. And I continued to do my thing, listened to Eric Clapton's records, filmed guitar solos - I did what I liked and what my heart was in. No one had any idea at the time that 30 years later this would serve me very well,” said Ian Maxin on RTVi, in the program “In New York with Victor Topaller.”

November 27 Jan Maxine will perform in New York (196 Allen St. New York, NY, 10002), tickets are already available for sale.

And in 2004, the company Sire, a subsidiary of the Warner Empire, was contracted with Regina Spector, with Madonna, Depeche Mode and other albums in its history. In 2006, Regina Spector ranked the top of Billboard magazine - her album Begin to Hope topped the Top Heatseekers chart, the hit parade of the most outstanding young performers, for the first time for artists of Soviet descent.
