Through-out his career, Rinat Ibragimov received top prizes at the All-Soviet Competition and the Bottesini International Competition and served Principal Double Bass positions with the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra, Moscow Academy of Ancient Music, and the Soloists of the Moscow Philharmonic.
Mr Ibragimov led the London Symphony Orchestra bass section from 1985 until his retirement in 2014, after suffering a stroke.
He also held teaching positions on the faculty at the Royal College of Music, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory, and the Central Specialist Music School.
Our condolences are with Mr Ibragimov's family, friends, colleagues, and students.
