NADIA REISENBERG: A Musician's Scrapbook - Compiled by Robert Sherman and Alexander Sherman

Cover, Nadia Reisenberg Book(College Park: IPAM, 1986. Hardcover. 192 pp. + separate index) $25.00


Russian-born Nadia Reisenberg (1904-1983) was one of the preeminent pianists and teachers of the 20th century. Among many other accomplishments, she was the first pianist to perform all the Mozart concertos in a consecutive series of live radio broadcasts (on WOR, New York, 1939-40). She was equally devoted to the solo, concerto, and chamber music literature, and for many years taught aspiring young performers at the Mannes College of Music and in Jerusalem at the Rubin Academy. Many of her recordings are available on CDs from Ivory Classics and IPAM. "A Musician's Scrapbook", assembled by her two sons, provides a vivid portrait of Reisenberg's life and career through photographs, newspaper clippings, autobiographical statements, and commentary by her musical colleagues.
