Rustem Hayroudinoff

Our avid reader Ilshat suggested another nice guy to be featured on Chirayliq, though his e-mail has been lying around in my mailbox for a very long time. Shame on me.

Rustem Hayroudinoff (aka Rustem Hayrutdinov, aka Röstäm Xäyretdin Äwzal ulı) is a Tatar and a world-famous classical pianist, born in Kazan into a family full of musicians.

He reminds a bit of a certain Tatar film maker acquaintance of mine.

Read more about Rustem and hear a short sample of his "Prelude in G Minor" by Rachmaninov.
