146pp. Russian composers, musicians, and musicologists have left an indelible mark on 20th century music, from the virtuoso Anton Rubinstein, who died in 1894 but who founded the Russian Conservatory at St. Petersburg and taught such musicians as Tchaikovsky, to Sviatoslav Richter, whose life bracketed the Soviet era. Expatriate Russian pianist Ernst Zaltsberg here offers a collection of personal essays on his favourites, including Rosalie Pasternak, Samuel Samosud, Maria Yudina, Nathan Milstein, and Emil Gilels.
