Ilya Musin was a conductor, a theoretician and the founder of a Russian school of conducting, but above all he was a great educator who nurtured a whole constellation of the brightest maestros. He began teaching at the Leningrad Conservatory in the early 1930s and dedicated more than sixty years to teaching. His students at various times included Valery Gergiev, Yuri Temirkanov, Semyon Bychkov, Vasily Sinaisky, Anatoly Briskin and many other renowned conductors.
“First and foremost, he was someone who received the gift of being a musician from God, and shared it with a vast number of people. He knew how to unlock talents not to restrain them, and generously shared all his knowledge teaching complete devotion to the chosen path,” says Valery Gergiev, Artistic and General Director of the Mariinsky Theatre.
