Vladimir Vysotsky, an iconic figure of the Soviet era, was known for his deep and emotional songs. One of his famous songs is “About a Friend,” which was first heard in the film “Vertical” directed by Stanislav Govorukhin, released in 1967. This song has become a symbol of friendship, loyalty and trials that can occur in a person’s life. Vysotsky writes that a true friend will show himself in difficult moments, while those who are not worthy of trust will show their true colors in moments of testing.
At a concert in memory of Vysotsky, Sultan Laguchev performed this particular composition, demonstrating his connection with Vysotsky’s legacy.
Sultan Laguchev, performing this song, not only paid tribute to Vysotsky, but also demonstrated his ability to breathe new life into classical works, making them relevant to modern audiences. His performance emphasized the eternal significance of Vysotsky's work and his ability to unite generations through music and poetry.
