Home-museum of Leopold and Mstislav Rostropovich
March 27 1927. In Baku was born the world’s famous musician, outstanding cellist, maestro Mstislav Rostropovich. The creative atmosphere, which reigned in the house of Rostropovich, and musical evenings played the most important role in formation and profession selection of young Mstislav. It is not accidental that the first piece of music of Mstislav Rostropovich, “Polka”, was written under the effect of that musical medium, in which he was growing in Baku. After their stay in Baku from 1925 to 1931 the family of Rostropovich moves to Moscow.
