Malcolm Frager was born in St. Louis, MO. on January 15, 1935. A child prodigy, Frager made his debut in St. Louis at the age of 10. From 1949 to 1955, Frager studied with Friedberg at Juilliard. He won several prizes, including the Leventritt Prize in 1959, the Queen Elizabeth of Belgium International Competition and second prize at the Geneva Competition. Frager majored in Russian at Columbia University and was fluent in seven languages. He went on to tour frequently in the U.S. and Europe. Frager recorded for RCA, EMI, Telarc and other labels. He died in 1991.
