Born in Odessa, Russia in 1890, Samuel Feinberg was a student of Goldenweiser's at the Moscow Conservatory. He graduated in 1911 and garnered a reputation as a concert virtuoso, noted especially for his playing of Bach and Beethoven. He also made a mark as a composer, writing twelve piano sonatas, among other works. Feinberg died in 1962.
IPAM endeavors to respond to all inquiries concerning its collections and — whenever possible — to general reference questions about pianists, piano music, and piano recordings. (We cannot and do not provide information about pianos or the piano industry.) IPAM is open to visitors by appointment between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Eastern Time), Mondays through Fridays, with rare exceptions.
