Felix Blumenfeld

Felix Blumenfeld, a pianist, conductor, teacher and composer, was born in Kovalevska, Russia in 1863. He studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory from 1881 to 1885. Following his graduation, and until his death in 1931, Blumenfeld held major teaching posts in St. Petersburg, Kiev, and Moscow. As a composer he produced a large number of attractive piano works, including etudes and preludes. His most famous pupils were Simon Barere and Vladimir Horowitz.
