Ballet project L.A.D. is, first of all, the initiative of pianist Aleksey Goribol, a tireless promoter of the Leonid Desyatnikov's work, a friend and colleague of the main St. Petersburg postmodernist composer, whose music Goribol loves like no one, performing it for more than one or even two decades.

The initials of the composer Leonid Arkadyevich Desyatnikov, included in the title, successfully reflect the idea of ​​​​the initial dedication of the project to the 65th anniversary of the composer. But even outside of any anniversary L.A.D. is an excellent marker of a collection of Desyatnikov’s “concert pieces”, done to four people of varying degrees of eminence for the choreographic “portrayal” of the chamber, cinematic and even choral heritage of the living classic.
