Singer Mikhail Shufutinsky in the studio of the program "The Fate of a Man" on the channel "Russia 1" recalled the years of study with the Prima Donna Alla Pugacheva. Together they studied at parallel courses at the Ippolitov-Ivanov Moscow Music School.
“We skipped classes together. They seemed unimportant to us. Didn't go to philosophy and political economics. Probably, they did it wrong, but our life told us so. The music school gave me a lot. I got a lot of fundamental knowledge. Musicians of different genres need them."
As the performer said, sometimes they even drank with Pugacheva.
“We took a couple of bottles of red wine and went to her house. She lived in a house near the music school. We went to the movies with her. She visited my house a couple of times. My grandmother didn't like Alla because of her short skirts. And I told my grandmother: “So this is what we love her for. What beautiful legs, why not bare them. " Alla actually had strict rules. Her parents were tight-knit,”said the musician.
Recall that Mikhail Shufutinsky graduated from a music school with a degree in conductor. Later he performed with various ensembles in Magadan, where he ended up after his studies.
