Yevgeny Yevtushenko just passed away April 1st in Texas.
Here's the Russian account from Tass:
No, this is incorrect. Yevtushenko died in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was a faculty member at the University there for many years.
I'm sorry - he died on April 1st in the US. That was the point of my comment; that this notable poet responsible for this very moving poem was living int he uS and had passed away very recently. I am curious about your pedantic and aggressive" this is incorrect."
I saw him on a US television show back then (David Susskind?) and I was surprised the commies had let him out.
"...pedantic and aggressive..."? Nothing of the sort was intended -- sorry. The post said Yevtushenko died in Texas which was indeed incorrect. He died in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was correcting the record, plainly and simply.
He died in Tulsa. However, he visited Houston several times to perform Symphony 13 with the Houston Symphony under Hans Graf (I sang in the Chorus!); and Symphony 13 and The Execution of Stepan Razin with the Moores School Chorus and Symphony under Franz Krager. He did extensive readings from his poetry before both performances.
