Alexander Goldenweiser

Alexander Goldenweiser was born in Moscow on March 10, 1875. He was a pupil at the Moscow Conservatory of Pabst and Siloti before graduating in 1897. He then began performing throughout Russia and also established a firm reputation as a teacher. In 1922, he was named Director of the Moscow Conservatory. Together with Igumnov and Neuhaus, he was regarded as one of the three leading piano pedagogues in the USSR, attracting many talented pupils. His artistry was captured on recordings that include the complete Lyric Pieces of Grieg, as well as works of other composers. Goldenweiser also published his own edition of the Beethoven piano sonatas. He died in 1961.
