The fact that the children of Vladimir Shainsky want to erect a monument at his grave became known at the end of last year. Then the composer’s heirs said that they needed to collect two million rubles in order to implement the idea. As a result, fundraising was stopped because Alla Pugacheva paid for the work.
And now, six months later, the monument finally appeared at the grave of Vladimir Yakovlevich. The monument is a white piano. “We discussed the design for a long time, we wanted to do something non-standard, because my father was an extraordinary person, and at the same time he was directly related to him. There are many photographs of him sitting at the piano. The idea arose from these memories. Of course, this is a very serious and big event for our family. We are very glad that the monument is finally here, and friends, acquaintances, fans will be able to come here, ”said Shainsky’s son Vyacheslav.
The monument is made of Italian marble. On a black tombstone there is a stylish white grand piano, on the open lid of which the name of the composer and the years of his life are indicated in gold letters.

The heirs are pleased with the way the sculptural composition looks. In their opinion, it reflects the meaning of Shainsky’s whole life – love of music.
Recall that the composer was buried at the Troekurovsky cemetery in Moscow, although he died in California in 2017. There were rumors that Vladimir Yakovlevich would be buried in the USA. But this was opposed by many admirers of the master, who believe that the master’s grave should be where he lived and worked. As a result, Shainsky’s widow, with the help of the Ministry of Culture, managed to organize a funeral in the Russian capital.
