Fortissimo music awards ceremonies held in St. Petersburg

The Fortissimo music awards ceremonies were held in the Summer Gardens in St. Petersburg on June 6.

The St. Petersburg State Conservatory's press service told Rosbalt that Mariinsky Theatre soloist Vasily Gorello was named the 'best musical performer' and the 'musicology' prize was awarded to St. Petersburg Conservatory Professor Ekaterina Ruchevskaya. Moreover, a special award was created for the 'Petersburger in Moscow,' which went to Mariinsky Theatre conductor Alexander Titov who is working by invitation as a conductor at the the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. The musician of the year was selected based on the results of a social survey of listeners, other prize-winners and Rector of the St. Petersburg Conservatory Sergey Roldugin.

The Fortissimo music award was founded by the St. Petersburg State Conservatory. It is awarded annually.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
