About Leonid Shukaev, Cello

WSO principal cellist Leonid Shukaev belongs to a great Russian cello tradition. As a student at St. Petersburg Conservatory, he was fortunate enough to study with Emanuel Fishmann, the teacher of Misha Maisky, Boris Pergamenshikov and many other great cellists who are now playing in leading Russian and European orchestras. Mr. Shukaev had a rich and successful teaching experience at St. Petersburg Conservatory and the Rimsky-Korsakov Music College, where he held the position of professor of cello and string quartet. He was also on the faculty at Oberlin Conservatory for five years.
