Lazar Berman

Lazar Berman was born in Leningrad in 1930. He made his first public appearance at the age of 4. He was a student of Goldenweiser at the Moscow Conservatory and graduated in 1953. He began touring the West in 1970 and returned repeatedly. Berman was especially admired for his interpretations of Liszt. In recent years, he made his home in Florence, Italy. The last decade of his life was spent teaching and supporting young musicians. On February 6, 2005, Berman died of a heart attack.
