Conductor St. Petersburg state Symphony orchestra, Sviatoslav Luther was lost sight of in the evening on Friday the 13th. That day he, according to friends, left her daughter at the grandmother and did not appear and did not respond to calls. “I still remember he called me on Friday afternoon, at 14:15, – told “MK” a friend of the conductor for the Conservatory’s Love Gribkova. – Then, in the evening, about 18:30, I tried to call back, but he didn’t answer the phone. Don’t know what could happen, this is very unlike the Glory.”

But investigators are categorical: “he was found hanging in a rope – said “MK” in the UK. – The apartment was locked from the inside. Accordingly, we have only one version.” The investigator also noted that the search for 45-year-old conductor began his father, world-renowned conductor Robert Luther, who worked at the Vienna state Opera and the Mariinsky theatre.

Friends recall that Sviatoslav Luther really wanted to work in the theater, but it will not take – “the system did not accept him.” “It was a very talented man, we just worked together on the same project,” continues Love Gribkova. – A hack was not engaged, as do many in our midst. He was an aesthete, and could only live among beauty. But at the same time – a simple guy, and he built himself a cottage, and a repair could do.” The conductor had the most to farm and to raise a daughter – with his wife they divorced immediately after the birth of a child, the conductor was left a single parent. With the father of the deceased had a complicated relationship – as is often the case in conducting dynasties. Therefore, in the opinion of the friends of the deceased it is strange that a statement the police asked the father.

The last time Svyatoslav went to all the theatres, offered their projects, wrote to the Ministry of culture. But no it has not brought results. According to the SC, the conductor found in the house at Bolshaya Konyushennaya. He rented an apartment on the last floor because lubitel very historical centre of Saint – Petersburg.

Sviatoslav Luther was one of the authors of the project “youth Philharmonia”, in addition, he regularly gave young bands the chance to play for the Petersburg public. “Life pushed me with Sviatoslav R. Luther in context, during the festival in the student Philharmonic,” says Anastasia, who worked in the orchestra under the direction of the deceased. – It was a very bright man. I hope that his colleagues will continue his work”.

“I have known him for over 30 years,” shared another friend of musician Dmitry Ralko. – We’ve worked together, now he just had to conduct a concert. You know, it’s hard to talk in the past tense. Very talented and brilliant conductor and musician, who loved his family. Perhaps it was an accident”.
