Lev Oborin

Lev Oborin was born in Moscow in 1907. He graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in 1926 and began teaching there in 1928. Oborin became a Professor in 1935 and also toured widely, winning a number of prizes in the USSR. He was a frequent partner to violinist David Oistrakh in the sonata literature. Oborin was also a composer of note with numerous piano works to his credit. He died in 1974.
