Robert Goldsand was born in Vienna, Austria on March 17, 1911. Goldsand studied under Camella Horn, Joseph Marx and Moriz Rosenthal. Goldsand began performing at the age of 10 and, around that time, toured Europe and South America. He made his American debut in 1927 at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Following a European tour, Goldsand settled in the U.S. in 1939 where he continued to make concert appearances. He also joined the faculty of the Manhattan School of Music. Goldsand made numerous recordings of works by Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms and Rachmaninoff for the Concert Hall Society. Goldsand died in 1991.
Processing of the Robert Goldsand Collection is in progress. The collection consists largely of private recordings of Goldsand's concert performances.
