Andrei Gavrilov, according to critics, is among the world’s greatest concert pianists. In 1974, he won first prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition and in the same year made a triumphant international dèbut at the Salzburg Fes-tival. Since then he has enjoyed an impressive international career which included performances with the world's greatest orchestras.
Gavrilov’s book captures the most meaningful episodes of his life. In it he shares his philosophical views on the major problems of the modern world that include but are not limited to totalita-rianism, fundamentalism and the decay of our modern culture. It is a piercing view of the man behind the music. An added bonus are the anecdotes about other famous Russian and international celebrities, such as Malkovich, McCartney, Richter, Rostropovich and many others.
The book Путеводитель в приличное об-щество introduces the reader into good manners. By “good manners” the author means the style of social behavior that is accepted by decent society and is marked by kindness and consideration for other people.
It is an etiquette book, planned and writ-ten especially for young readers. All the rules for good manners are in it, easy to read and easy to follow.
