Composer Lev Aleksandrovich Laputin received his musical education at the Gnessin Musical Pedagogical Institute (1953) and the Moscow Conservatory (composition class of A. Khachaturian), from which he graduated in 1956.

The most significant works of Laputin are the poem for choir and orchestra “The Word of Russia” to the verses of A. Markov, piano and violin sonatas, string quartet, piano concerto, romances to verses by Pushkin, Lermontov, Koltsov, 10 piano pieces.

The ballet “Masquerade” is the largest work of Laputin. The music recreates the disturbing atmosphere of a romantic drama. Creative luck accompanies the composer in Arbenin’s cruel leitmotif, Nina’s charming theme, in the waltz, and in three scenes of Arbenin and Nina with different emotional states.
