Mstislav Rostropovich Monument to be Set up in the Centre of Moscow
Mstislav Rostropovich

The monument to the outstanding violoncellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich will be set up in the centre of Moscow, at the crossing of Eliseevsky and Bryusov Lanes near Resurrection Church na Uspenskom Vrazhke. Initially, starting from 2001, it was planned to fix a monument to historian Nikolay Karamzin on this place. However the project failed to be financed. In January, 2009 somebody offered for the first time to transfer the would-be Karamzin monument to another place, and set up Rostropovich monument near the Resurrection Church instead. Alexander Rukavishnikov has created the statue of the musician who is depicted playing a violoncello. Among the artist’s works there is a monument to Vladimir Nabokov in Swiss Montreux and to Emperor Alexander II of Russia in Moscow. Monument to Mstislav Rostropovich will be unveiled on 27th March 2012, on the day of the musician’s 85th anniversary. The Rostropovich Foundation bears the expenses. Source:
