Ulanovski, Slava


Slava Ulanovski was born on 18 November 1951 in Moscow. He studied composition at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in that city with Tikhon Khrennikov from 1978 to 1983 and became a member of the Russian Composers’ Union in 1985. His compositional production includes symphonic works, chamber and choral music, lieder, incidental music and film scores. He has dedicated special attention to music theatre (musicals, operas, ballets).

Ulanovski emigrated to Germany in 1993 and became a member of the German Composers’ Union in 1996. One of his most recent works, the ballet “Snow White and the Russian Prince”, was premiered with resounding success at the 2nd European Fairy Tale Festival in Tampere (Finland). Ulanovski is not only a composer, but also a gifted arranger of orchestral literature who scored a real hit with his wittily ironical adaptation of Beethoven’s “Die Wut über den verlorenen Groschen” (“Rage over the Lost Penny”) for percussion solo and orchestra. After a performance given by the “European Soloists’ Ensemble”, the Dortmunder Presse called the piece an “ingeniously crazy orchestral adaptation”.
