A modern renaissance man and a creative force, Dmitry Sitkovetsky has made a considerable impact on every aspect of musical life.

Driven by a desire to share the fascination of music and musicians with the widest possible audience, Maestro Sitkovetsky created ‘It Ain't Necessarily So’, a compelling series of one-on-one conversations with musicians, who are not only ranking among the world’s most celebrated musicians, but who are also close personal friends of his.

As Dmitry Sitkovetsky outlined himself:
" I want you to get to know my friends as I know and love them. Some of what you hear might surprise you. Some of it might shatter your assumptions. But hopefully all of it will give you a deeper connection to these extraordinary people."

Meet Evgeny Kissin, Leonidas Kavakos, Barbara Hendricks, Mischa Maisky, Bella Davidovich, Sir Neville Marriner, Yefim Bronfman, Gary Graffman and get to know them in an entirely never-before seen manner as Dmitry Sitkovetsky addresses them as a life-long friend and a musical collaborator, thus achieving unprecedented candour and intimacy in these conversations.
Each episode features a guest star in a very special conversation and also unique footage of their performances.

‘It Ain't Necessarily So’ is now available for TV distribution worldwide by EuroArts Music.
