In June of 1943 Shostakovich came to teach at the Moscow Conservatory and Revol Bunin was the first student selected by the great composer to be his pupil.

It happened, that for a while, Bunin was Shostakovich’s only student. Revol graduated from the Conservatory in 1945 with honors. In 1947 Bunin moved to Leningrad, where he taught music arrangement at the Leningrad Conservatory and assisted Shostakovich as a co-professor of composition. Same year his 2nd Symphony was premiered in Leningrad, under the button of a legendary conductor Evgeny Mravinsky.

In 1948 he moved back to Moscow and worked as an editor at the State Music Publishing. Revol Bunin died on July 3rd, 1976 in Moscow. He was never awarded State honors, for he refused to join the Communist Party, in contrast with many of his colleagues. Bunin wrote music scores to 48 motion pictures, cartoons and documentaries.

He left 45 major compositions, including 9 symphonies, numerous sonatas, quartets, trios, an opera, romances, several concertos for piano, violin. His viola concerto (Op. 22) was composed in 1953 and dedicated to his close friend, famed violist, Rudolf Barshai. Read more on Last.fm.
