Yuri Vekshin is a composer and member of the International Union of Composers of XXI AGE. Yuri composes music in the genre “Classical crossover”.
He creates music and music settings with a very special and attractive sound, skilfully balanced harmonies softly reveal the narration. Yuri considers the music as one of the most universal expressions of human feelings, believing that the emotions do not depend on boundaries and time. Although none of his parents are professional musicians, his father, an experienced pilot, studied music being a teenager, but he did not stop playing the piano building a career of a pilot. Yuri recalls how he was listening to mainly classical music at home in his childhood.

She took part in different musical competitions.

In his own words Yuri says “It is an exciting and attractive vocal, the lightness and the deepness of the combination of piano melody and lyric cello against the orchestra, intriguing melody unites poetic lightness of the text with unforgettable harmonies. The smooth and hearty sound of ‘Non lasciate chi amate’ does not leave the listeners indifferent, the melody abounds with clear warmth and honesty, originality which grasps and inspires, it has a full and deep sounding, it carries us away to emotional and deep travel full of beauty and adventures.”
