— I got to study in a group with Tamara Ilyinichna Sinyavskaya, an opera diva, the widow of Muslim Magomayev. Unfortunately, I didn’t study with her for long—I resembled my husband. In addition, it was difficult for me to engage with the work of Muslim Magomayev,” says the artist.

In 2013, the singer tried his hand at the television project “The Voice” on Channel One. During the blind auditions, Alexander Borisovich Gradsky was the first to turn.

— I applied for the first time in 2012, but it didn’t go through. Three times I failed to submit my entry to the show. In 2013, I decided to participate again, but again my application was not accepted. I thought it was not fate. But then I saw that it was written in small letters that the audio recording should not exceed more than two megabytes, and I sent more. As a result, I became a participant in the second season and won,” shares Sergei Volchkov.

After participating in the show, the singer’s life changed dramatically; he had the opportunity to meet great musicians: Alexandra Pakhmutova, Joseph Kobzon.

— It is important to show yourself, your skills. When a person goes for victory, there is only competitiveness in him. And when you go to show your skills, this is sincerity. It doesn’t matter what notes you play or how they sound when you play them, what matters is how you do them. For example, during exams you need to play the notes as correctly as possible, but on stage you need to be yourself, advises the honored artist.
