Christianity with Brodsky, in "Moscow – Petuski" and in postmodern music
Books and lecture courses
"Casus Vita Nova" – a book by Vladimir Martynov, written in the wake of the defeat of his opera Vita Nova criticism. Martynov – one of the most significant modern thinkers and composers. He considers the postmodern a unique chance for Christianity: with the end of modernity, the possibility of a “new sacred space” opens up. “Casus Vita Nova” is a book from the second period of his philosophical creativity, in which he went from pure philosophizing to “autoarchaeology”, to subjectivating his concepts: a mix of philosophy, autobiography, simply “personal utterance”. An interesting “report” of the artist on the creation and fate of his creation; the most interesting philosophy with the “report” of its “residence” by the philosopher himself. Christian thought is at the center of postmodern art and thought.
They also added quite a lot of new lectures and Martynov's interviews: for example, his conversation with Sekatsky about the “end of time”, “On the search for true joy in faith, music, life”, etc.

at the bottom of hell

and with sorrow and tight heart amuse
and tears wash eyes and eyes,
