reached the highest standards in his profession and was invited
to play in the Moscow Radio Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Bolshoi
Theatre and the State Symphony Orchestra of the USSR. Most convincing
was his performance of the famous cantilena solo pieces. Amazing
by the quality of sound and expressiveness they always ravished
the audience and his colleagues. An outstanding musician Mikhailov
became a very good pedagogue too: he was invited to teach students
at the Department of the Wind Instruments at the Moscow Conservatoire.
He was very sociable and well-wishing man and had no enemies. For
purely personal reasons he left the country and departed abroad
where he untimely died. One would like this disc to become a tribute
of memory to a great artist and a true friend of mine.
Professor at the Moscow Conservatoire
