The body of Igor Izvekov, 53, was found five days ago at an apartment on Malomoskovskaya Street, where he lived alone. An investigation is being conducted.

A graduate of the Gnessin Academy, he taught at the 93rd Moscow Children’s Music School and made transpositions for many ensembles.

Although something of a loner, he was widely known and liked among Moscow musicians.

    Awful story. And good neobaroque music.

  • Curious says:

    Was he a dissident?

  • Luigi Nonono says:

    Sadly, all too common in Russia.
