The pianist Denis Matsuev has reported the death from Coronavirus of his friend Evgeny Ivanovich Shestakov, music director of the Tyumen Symphony Orchestra in Siberia since 2015.
Matusev writes: It’s hard to comment on something in such moments, because inside is a complete emptiness. Literally, we just recently discussed and approved the program of our festival for December this year. This news with his powerful Siberian energy and health in my head is never going to be in my mind. He has a young wife, a little daughter and another child who should be coming soon.
