Mangitaev Mynzhasar


Composer. Born in 1937 in South Kazakhstan Region. Graduated from Kurmangazy Alma-Ata State Conservatory in the composition class of Professor K.Kuzhamiarov. Mangitaev’s creative work is varied in genres and notable for striking melody; the organic unity of vocals and folk and instrumental basis in their modern interpretation is peculiar to his national colourful style. His style is especially reflected in the compositions such as: the ballet «Kozy and Baiyan», the symphonic poems: «Arman», «Kulager», the oratorio «Bessmertnaya lubov (Immortal love)», the poems for chorus: «Aksak kulan», «Na zhailau (At zhailau)», «Napevi Karatau (Karatau melodies)» etc. The song «Ne izdeisin konilim» based upon the verse of the great Abai became popular not only among professional performers, but among common people.
