source: «Novosti Luganska website»Professor of the Moscow Tchaikovski Conservatory Leonid Bobylev presented the report "Shostakovich as a teacher" at the scientific-practical conference, dedicated to the 110th anniversary ofDmitry Shostakovich, which was held in Lugansk State Academy of Culture and Arts named after Mikhail Matusovsky.

"Today at the conference, I gave a little information about what Shostakovich was as a teacher. I've studied this question for many years. Shostakovich is a unique phenomenon of the XX century. It was a thorough persecution against him, he was forbidden, 'pushed', and he reflected in his music time and events he experienced in his country" , —said Leonid Bobylev at the interview to the 'Novosti Luganska' website.

The conference opened the festival of contemporary symphonic, operatic and choral music, "To the whole world and for all times", organized by Lugansk Music Academy at the occasion of the anniversary.
