Nicolai Sverev

Nicolai Sverev was born in Moscow in 1832. He taught at Moscow University from 1870 until his death in 1893. He was considered a demanding teacher, but brought out the best in students like Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, Siloti and Igumnov. Sverev was a friend of Tchaikovsky, who taught him theory.
