The music of this exceptionally talented composer, bright and sincere, expressive and highly intellectual, cannot leave the listener indifferent; his works have become widely known among those who love the musical art.

Concerto-baroque for violin and string orchestra
In this work, the composer develops many structural and instrumental methods and ideas that were typical for music of the first half of the XVIII century - the music of baroque epoch, but he transfers them, bringing the form of the past onto the field of modern art.
The Concerto can be heard rather frequently on the concert stages; for instance, it was performed on the "Russian music Panorama" Festival that was dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the Composer's Union of Russia (2000). A number of famous musicians have included this work into their repertoire.

The Seasons.
An orchestra version of the earlier chamber work. It was first performed on November 12, 2004 by Mikhail Utkin and Chamber orchestra conducted by A.Istomin. A traditional theme – human reaction to the periods of the year's circle that follow each other. Four pieces of the suite embody the four seasons.
The spring. The ebullient young forces of the Nature arise after the long winter's sleep, sweeping off all the obstacles in their way. The picture of spring is embodied in the energetic and impetuous music of this piece, full of contrasts of musical themes.
The summer. A nocturne that depicts a poetic night scene. Now, when the nature is rich and abundant, in the deep of the night a love scene takes place. Passionate words of confession, declarations of love, tender whisper of the two lovers are heard.
The autumn. An intermezzo. The music of this movement is full of sadness and melancholy. These are the moments of extinction, the Nature's farewell: the Nature, in its beautiful attire, is about to fall asleep.
The winter. The continuos motion of this movement depicts a picture of a snow-fall, followed by a real snow and wind storm.
