The telegram reads, in particular:
”Russian culture has suffered a heavy loss. A talented musician, composer and well-known master of the national stage has died. His creativity marks a whole epoch in the history of jazz and all forms of musical art. During the many years of its successful activity the orchestra created and led by Oleg Lundstrem became a school where many of its performers exercised their greatest professional skills.
Oleg Lundstrem's memory will be kept forever in the hearts of relatives, friends and the many admirers of his numerous talents“.
