Maestro acquired the degree of Ph.D. in the field of astrophysics (1985). It took him only two years to go through an individual course in composing at Azerbaijan State Conservatory. Only 15 years after shifting from scientific career to a composer's one he created and recorded 120 audio albums, including "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" (1996), "World Chronicle", comprising 21 disks (2001), "The Music of the Sounding Spheres - 12 albums of the Signs of the Zodiac" (2002). The composer is the author of scores for seven movies, including: "Academy for Cowboys", "Tsiolkovsky - Easy Flight". He also composed music for 5 performances: "Voice behind a Thin Wall" (Drama Theater "Soprichastnost", 1995), "Once there was a Man" (MHAT after M.Gorky, 2002), and others.

Maestro is a prize winner of many international art festivals, a corresponding member of Petrovsky Academy in philosophy, and a member of the Literary Men Union of Russia. He has published about 30 scientific and popular articles and a number of collected notes of his own works. He is the author of two books: "Music Cosmos Miracles" (2005), and "Between Stonehenge and Arkhaim" (2006). He has created philosophical-musical salons in Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Stavropol, Kislovodsk as well as "The Wave of Future", the Center of Synthesis of Arts (Moscow, 1995). There is also the analogous Cultural Center in Germany (2000).

Star Maestro is the president and the founder of the international festival "Talents Unite World" (2002). The goal of the festival is to reveal talents in various spheres of culture and unification of gifted people. Musicians, artists, scientists and philosophers usually take part in these festivals.

For his amazing creativity he, without any hesitation, could be called the second A.N.Scriabin (1872-1915, Russian composer). While abroad, he is considered to be a Russian Jean-Michel Jarre. His tours are successful in Germany, France, Italy and Luxembourg, and, naturally, all over Russia.

The composer has created 30 concert programs, including synthesis-concerts woven with video and lighting effects: "Celestial Atlantis" (1996), "Luxembourg Concert" (2000), "Laws of Creation" (2002), "Miracle Expectation" (2003), "The Milky Way" (2005), and "Catarsis" (2006).

  • Those depths, rhythms and sufferings of the Intelligent Cosmos which L.Timoshenko has peeped in through music could not be viewed with the help of any existing telescope. The highest mathematics would never reach them. And it was not just an illustration of a scientific work, but it was such a philosophy, that was available for J.S.Bach, A.N.Scriabin and M.K.?iurlionis (Lithuanian artist), in a word it is a completely different way of world cognition - an audible harmony of the Universe:"
  • By keeping with Scriabin's traditions and, developing the creative search of ?iurlionis and Kandinsky, Leonid Timoshenko creates musical works of Cosmic sounding.
  • This is the music of the future which is able to alter Man and shift his consciousness greatly and at the same time to give a fresh impulse to our modern art as a whole.
As opposed to the great variety of such kinds of concert programs which exist, the main difference of Star Maestro works is in the character of the composer's musical language ("new romanticism"). His conversance comes from his high level of knowledge by putting together various layers of the world musical cultures, starting from ancient rhythms to the powerful symphonic pictures, from the imitation of sounds of some kinds of extraterrestrial languages, alternating with all kinds of noise effects to the subtle tissue of lyrical trifles; from the emotionally exalted hymns to the imitation of spiritual psalms and chorals. In his music one can find the violin flying passages and the heavy breath of organ chords, along with rock-improvisation and oriental lacy music expression; an elevated life-asserting melody gives way to grave philosophical contemplations; an emotional gust of passion turns a prayer, followed by vivid pictures weaved of delicate sounds of ancient instruments.

The concerts of Star Maestro offer lyrics and expression,
where powerful orchestral sounds reveal the masterly
vivid vision of the author.
