  2. Since October 11, 2022, every day at noon, the melody of the first verse of the song "Shaimuratov General" sounds in the chimes on Sovetskaya Square. The song is performed in a bell-like sound and lasts more than 40 seconds. Its epic sound at a slow pace seems to float over the new space of the square, where a monument to the legendary commander, Hero of Russia Minigali Shaimuratov was unveiled.

    Oleg Zhdanov, the head of the musical part of the Bashkirosphilarmony, composer-arranger, Honored Artist of Bashkortostan, worked on an unusual order.

    — The work was carried out for about two weeks. For the chimes it was necessary to make a small passage. The bells were selected carefully — somewhere I put live timbres of Pskov bells, somewhere I took instruments with bells in the composition. It was not easy to edit and rearrange the bell timbres, their harmonic component to the Bashkir melody. Another difficulty was the slow pace that was set," Oleg Zhdanov told Bashinform.

    The song was written in 1942 by composer Zagir Ismagilov based on poems by Kadyr Dayan. This year the song celebrated its 80th anniversary: for the first time it was performed by the soloist of the Bashkir Opera and Ballet Theater Gabdrakhman Khabibullin. Since then, the song has become popular, almost folk.
