Rosina Lhevinne was born in Kiev, Russia in 1880. She made
her debut in Moscow in 1895, which was followed by a tour of European capitals.
She married Josef Lhevinne and settled in New York City after World War I. She
made her U.S. debut in 1923 and went on to teach at Juilliard, but curtailed her
solo career during the rest of her husband's life. She then re-emerged in
occasional chamber-music and concerto performances that earned her great acclaim
during her later years. She died in 1976.
