Little Tragedies biography
The Russian group LITTLE TRAGEDIES (former Pardox) was founded by the composer Gennady Ilyin and guitarplayer Igor Mihel in Kursk, Russia in 1988. The direction of the music was 'Progressive/Art rock'. In 1990 Gennady Ilyin leaves to study in St. Petersburg, he acts in a conservatory by Rimskiy - Korsakov on branch of a composition. The group continues to write down albums during a summer and winter vacation. After ending a conservatory, Gennady Ilyin leaves to live in Germany, but he continues to write music for group and he in parallel writes music for symphonic and chamber orchestras. Arrive to Russia he two times per one year, winter and summer can only, and the group continues to exist, and writes down till two albums per one year. In 1999 Igor Mihel (guitar) is arranged on work in studio of a sound recording " Art Technology "and with sound-engineer Eugeniy Shukin decide to engage in record of music Gennady Ilyin, then the group changes the name Paradox to LITTLE TRAGEDIES.

The first album "Passions on Titanic" was recorded in the studio "Art Technology" within just two days. This music is a sonic impression of guitarplayer Igor and composer Gennady from the well-known movie "Titanic". In his arrangements Gennady uses a huge collection of vintage analog synths collected in "Art Technology" studio. The "old school" of analog recording (without digital tools!), combined with the sounds of original vintage synths and Hammond organ recreates that unique and famous sound of great groups of 70'th. Thus Hammond and Minimoog becomes the "sonic signature" of the group. Among the members of the group this album is the most beloved recording. On "The Sun Of Spirit" Gennady gains inspiration from the poetry of the great Russian poet Nikolay Gumilev and writes music on his poems (cycle "Porcelain Pavilion"). The album "Porcelain Pavilion" is a continuation of "The Sun Of Spirits". It is speculated that nobody else currently plays such a music in Russia.

Porcelain Pavilion
Little Tragedies Symphonic Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Same year with ''The sun of spirit'' comes the second part of Gennady Ilyin's trilogy, entitled ''Porcelain pavilion'' and practically recorded around the same time with the first part with Igor Mikhel on guitars.It was released on Boheme Music and the album has seen a few reissues, the MALS one credited to Ilyin contains also some bonus material.''Porcelain pavilion'' marks also the first attempt by Ilyin to promote his project through a videoclip (the chosen track was the ''The way'').

''Porcelain pavilion'' has a slightly more optimistic approach than the previous album, somewhat abandoning the intense, sinister Avant-Garde-like moments for a more dreamy, accesible and pleasant sound, always along the lines of Classical-flavored Progressive Rock.Musically the album is heavily led by Ilyin's keyboard pyrotechnics with organ, synthesizers and piano as the main instruments, delivering a more direct style towards Classic Symphonic Rock with evident E.L.P. nuances.The music is interesting with a few nice melodies, angular solos and vintage-styled organ moves, rarely giving emphasis on the cinematic soundscapes of the previous work, although some Electronic and ambiental atmospheres are still present.The concept flows with Ilyin's narration, always delivered in the Russian language, and the sporadic moments with Mikhel on guitars become extremely bombastic, having a certain more grandiose flavor.The synthetic drums are an issue, but basically for a one-man effort ''Porcelain pavilion'' appears to be more than decent, maybe a bit more of an electric taste with guitars could give the album a higher value.

Keyboard-based Prog Rock with some lovely symphonic colors, struggling a bit due to a plastic rhythm section.Nothing more, nothing less.Recommended.

Little Tragedies Symphonic Prog

Review by Sol Invictus

5 stars Another excellent album from this Russian band! This album is for everyone who enjoys art rock/symphonic prog/classical music with a Russian twist. It is obvious where Gennady Ilyin has taken his inspirations from; as a classical pianist he has much in common with Keith Emerson - and that is good! In "Hallelujah" Little tragedies interpret a song by Prokofiev in a very enjoyable manner - it is a merry tune with a Christmas feeling - and ELP used the same song as base in their "I Believe in Father Christmas". "Conquistador" is a nine minute breathtaking journey that stretches from heavy prog through melancholy and ends up with an emotional final. "Obsessed" is another nine minute of pleasure, starting with a feeling that the obsession is boiling underneath - and that bursts out two minutes into the track, then comes a passage with Russian song, the track then brings all pieces together in the final. "Poet's House" is a moody passage with Russian song. "Too Late" is like a 12 minute long symphonic poem, starting in silence, then the keyboards and guitar bursts out in a heavier theme, followed by a short emotional Russian song passage, leaving room for a heavier passage, combining some of the elements from the album, slowly ramping up the piece, adding new elements, to the grand finale, which is breathtaking in its beauty, ending with a question mark - is it really too late? I have listen more or less continuous at this album during the last two weeks and despite some weaknesses (mainly regarding the vocals and some recording imperfections) and my conclusions cannot be other than that this is a true masterpiece! Gennady Ilyin is a true genius, both as a keyboard player and as a composer, where he is one of the absolute best in the world - sorry to say that his vocals are average though. Also the other musicians in the band are truly excellent. This album is a true gem and a "must have"! Despite the average vocals and the "non-state-of-the-art" recording, this album is far too good to not deserve a 4.8 star rating. Highly recommended!

Return
Little Tragedies Symphonic Prog

Review by Sol Invictus

4 stars With "Return", Little Tragedies have progressed into one of the very best bands in the contemporary "Symphonic prog / art rock" genre. I have no clue what the lyrics are about as it is all in Russian - but the music speaks for itself - and how it speaks! This is truly excellent! Imagine a combination of ELP, Arena, Dream Theater, classical music with a Russian twist and the outcome will be pretty close to Little Tragedies. The band leader and main composer, Gennady Ilyin, has developed to be an excellent composer and the music is very melodic and appealing, beautiful and complex - also for the demanding listener. This is very much keyboard-driven music - but all musicians perform extremely well and play with loads of feeling and technical skill; this is indeed a very tight and good album. Absolute world class! Highly recommended!

The Paris Symphony
Little Tragedies Symphonic Prog

Review by Sol Invictus

3 stars "The Paris Symphony" is in my opinion the weakest effort from this excellent Kursk-based band. It is obvious that Keith Emerson is some kind of role model for Gennady Ilyin, who doubtless is a very skilled musician - but when it comes to composition The Paris Symphony lacks the confidence of the bands later efforts and the distance to Keith Emerson is in this case obvious. It is however interesting to follow the bands progress; from this bud to later beautiful flowers and as such, this album deserve a three star rating. Gennady Ilyin is the main musician on this album - and he definitly know how to play his keyboards! All musicians on this album are good - and that is not the problem. No; the problem is rather that the music drowns in all keyboards. I however like the idea to make a concept out of the perceptions and and emotions related to Paris - and in some respect I would say that Gennady and co- musicians have succeeded. How about the music then? Basically it is very obvious that Gennady, who is the main composer, is classically trained both as concert pianist and as classical composer. On this album, he mixes quite gothic type organs with jazz, classical music and some rock - and he does it with a twist (I like the surprising "Paint it black" reference at the end of "Montmatre" - how on earth did that end up there?). The production could however been better. Don't get me wrong: I am a big fan of Little Tragedies - but I would rather (and highly) recommend their later albums, where the bud really have evolved into the most beautiful flower. I would give this album a 2.6 star rating.

The Cross

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

4 stars The cross from 2008 is another worthy album from their catalogue. This time a simple album but clocking over an hour of music. Musicaly speaking Little Tragedies is inspired by bands like ELP and from symphonic prog bands from the '70 thats for sure but also they incorporated in their sound some prog metal elements, the combination resulted is excellent and without sounding like a prog metal band at all. The head of the band Gennady Ilyin and together with the guitarsist they done some fantstic work here again. I think this band is quite underrated and to less known to larger public and is a shame because their music is very complicated and yet melodic and full of intresting arrangements. Sometimes is keyboard dominated prog, sometimes is more towards prog metal ala Dream Theater, sometimes the band combines this two always with eficiency and with good intelligent passages. Some brilliant moments are on opening track The cross or The God Abandoned almost 18 min of pure beauty, both show how great Little Tragedies is. Here we have also some fokish moments like on Tanets and in rest the album is an avalanche of keyboards and impressive song writting. Again 4 stars , but I like little more New faust then this one, still excellent and overlooked.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

4 stars TOP notch album

Little Tragedies is without doubt one of the best progressive rock bands Russia ever had and has of course. THier music is highly impressive in instrumental arrangem,ents with lots of tempo changes and excellent songwritting. New Faust from 2006 released at Mals is a great example of how Gennady Ilyin the main composer and the head of the band manage to understands music in our days and the final product is simply said excellent. New faust is a double album with almost 2 hours of music, but with all that long musical journy , this album for sure doesn't dissipointing at all, not a boring moment, quite contrary each piece is a total winner, with a plus on the epic closing number from first CD - Two Demons, just brilliant. Little Tragedies has a special way of combining symphonic prog elements with in places I can hear Dream Theater similarities, and special in keyboard departement. They incorporate in their symphonic overall sound some prog metal elements, the result is outstanding. Complicated arrangements with many and long instrumental passages, lots of superb guitar works and keyboards aswell, both Alexander Malakhovsky from guitar and Gennady Ilyin from keyboards and aswell voice are very skillful and gifted musicians and musicaly speaking they understanding each other very strong. Some passage sounds like they were extracted from Dream Theatre - Scene from a memory, very similar in aproach, but in the end not bad at all. New Faust is a fantastic album with many memorable parts that will pleases both symphonic prog listners as prog metal lovers aswell. Easy 4 stars, one of the best albums ever from Russia, this is solid as rock and goes recommended.

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars The second part of the orgasmic trilogy recorded by Gennady Ilyin in late-90's was the album ''The Sun of Spirit'', a work created again at Art-Technology Studio in Moscow, released in 2000 on Russian label Boheme.Ilyin was helped by sound engineer Evgeny Shchukin and guitarist Igor Mikhel, but because there was a band feeling during the creation of the album Ilyin decided to release under the Little Tragedies name.A decade later the album was re-released by Mals Records, this time correctly credited to Gennady Ilyin himself (with a bonus track).

The first few tracks see Ilyin trying to deliver a bit more experimental themes, always of heavy Classical nature, with cinematic soundscapes, sharp Electronic vibes and melodramatic, theatrical vocals.The E.L.P. influences are still apparent in the bombastic synth solos and the grandiose symphonic parts, but there are some very dark moments, close to early ROZ VITALIS, with a haunting sound, closer to Avant-Garde than Progressive Rock.From the fourth track and on things seem to be rolling.The presence of some incredible guitar solos and rhythm parts by Igor Mikhel, the more Prog-compatible structures by Ilyin and the use of the drum programming result to well-crafted Symphonic Rock compositions, which still retain a strong Electronic flavor.Plenty of orchestral themes, bits of acoustic passages and a few nice melodies make the work stronger as it unfolds, eventually presenting Ilyin's talent in full mode.

While this early stuff created by Gennady Ilyin has some too ambitious ideas, it contains enough well-executed material to evaluate this man's unique talent.Recommended, a great work for all lovers of keyboard-driven Symphonic Rock.

Little Tragedies Symphonic Prog

Review by KingBarbarossa

4 stars The saga continues... Little Tragedies are back with a new studio album. As soon as it was made available I had to have it. Stylistically again closer to "New Faust" they are once again celebrating their full blown, wonderfully over-the-top and classically inspired prog rock including the quirky Russian vocals which makes all this just so unique. Anyone who knows Little Tragedies won't need to have any further description of what this sounds like. To anyone else I would just recommend to listen to the sound samples on their web site. What I really like here is that despite all pyrotechnical wizardry there is also a fine display of composition/songwriting which is a craft that does not always stand at the center with many bands. On the (small enough) downside my gripe would be the synthetic imitation of strings which nowadays in the age of really good sample libraries should not be necessary - or I would recommend to go retro and use Mellotron sounds. Besides that I would really wish this band was able to manifest the budget for a really good recording (no, the sound is not bad, but it could be more transparent and benefit from some high-end production) along with a worthy visual representation regarding the cover design which I think is somewhat underselling the music. That being said I think this is an exciting album for everyone who loves to indulge in a classically infused over-the-top musical fireworks!

The Paris Symphony
Little Tragedies Symphonic Prog

Review by toroddfuglesteg

3 stars The first ever compositions from this Russian band.

The mainman in Little Tragedies, Gennady Ilyin, has a degree in music from a Russian university and is classically trained. That is pretty evident here and on all their albums. Little Tragedies comes into progressive rock from the classical side of scene. Well, approaches progressive rock, that is. Rock, this is not.

What we get here is cascades upon cascades upon cascades of church organs and other tangents. It is like sitting in a cathedral and listening to the organist there playing a symphony. This kind of symphonies. Unfortunate for me, I am sitting in a half decent office and is staring at this monitor. I wish I was in a cathedral though because that would had enhanced this experience/piece of music x amount of times.

The music itself is good. Most of it is brooding passages and melody lines which captures the subjects brilliantly. There are some lack of good melody lines. But I am coming back to this cathedral thing where this music should be enjoyed and not in a grubby office in the middle of nowhere. This is music to be experienced. Not to be listened to. Fetch me a cathedral and I will give this a four star rating. Without it; three stars will have to do.

The Sixth Sense
Little Tragedies Symphonic Prog

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

2 stars I couldn't agree more with Prog-jester that the vocals are the biggest issue with this album. He mentions the lyrics too but I don't understand Russian so obviously I have no idea about that. It's not that the vocals sound bad, in fact he's a good singer but the Russian language is really unattractive to hear sung. If this was an all-instrumental album i'd feel much differently about this record. It's over 77 minutes which doesn't help either.

"The Sixth Sense" has an epic intro and it kicks in rather heavily. It lightens with synths and piano then unfortunately the vocals arrive. It kicks back in after 3 minutes with organ. Nice.Themes are repeated. "Bird" has this FLOYD-like spacey intro with sax and piano.The vocals ruin this great mood.Trumpet in this one too. It changes after 3 minutes as the tempo picks up and the piano leads. It turns heavy 6 minutes in. I like when it calms down 7 1/2 minutes in too. "On The Seashore" is spacey to start and synths lead after 2 minutes as it picks up.The vocals join in. It settles back to almost a 90's CAMEL-like flavour. I love when the guitar comes in before 5 minutes and it gets heavier.Vocals return as it settles then it's spacey late.

"Prodigal Son" features piano and reserved vocals.This isn't good especially when the vocals arrive. It settles back before 8 minutes. "Consolation" is ballad-like.Yikes. "Dream" is mid-paced and vocal and piano led. Horns too. "Bonding" is again ballad-like with vocals. No thanks. "Turkey" is synth led and uptempo.Vocals before a minute. Horns and guitar after 1 1/2 minutes. Synths are back leading again. "I Am Polite With Modern Life..." is a mellow, sappy ballad. "Pre-Memory" is laid back and vocal led. It turns instrumental before 3 minutes.This is better but it's just okay. "You And I" is not good at all. "I Haven't Lived,I've suffered Through It..." opens with piano melodies as vocals join in. Another ballad. Just kill me now. It does pick up some. Fans only.
