The good few of historical buildings has been sentenced to a pulling down in Brjusovom a lane which will turn to musical Arbat with court yard for fate - n - a beater, jazz and even poetry. Opposite to Conservatory the courageous thought of the artist has placed the grandiose Conservatoire area with statues and theatrical boxes in the middle of which it is proud the monument to Tchaikovsky would loom.

not a secret that after occurrence in capital of the Arena and a monument to Peter creativity of Tsereteli with fear is watched by many Muscovites. Therefore on a place of expected building the silent panic reigned.

- the Madhouse! Unless it is possible to take down these houses! - Sergey Nikolaevich walking the dog, even has turned pale from this terrible news. - Here there lived such people that these buildings zaveshany memorial boards, as Brezhnev orders.

- that Tsereteli is not sat! - another was indignant the native . - Bryusov a lane - a part of old silent Moscow which becomes ever less. Us, inhabitants, Zurab, of course, will move to Butovo... But it is a pity to me at all itself. Capital it is a pity.

the Head of church Voskresenija Slovushchego, opposite to which Tsereteli has decided to arrange a children`s playground about the Internet - cafe and musical shops, with horror has crossed and has told simply: It it is impossible to do! But most of all the people were interested by the Choral area. TSereteli has seen it at departure from Bryusov of a lane on the Tver street and has decided to establish here...

in Conservatory unlike unfortunate Bryusov`s inhabitants of a lane about the project knew and very long could not tell something distinct. Rector Alexander Sokolov was limited to a phrase: I yet have not received any papers from the mayoralty - but one of professors (on the terms of full anonymity) has told directly: I Hope, they will have enough mind not to dishonour the Russian culture. If the Conservatory turns to a new Arena to the Russian music will simply spit in soul .
