American pianist of Russian descent, was born in Russia [he was born in Chicago — see elsewhere on this site] about 1888 and died in Chicago on August 30, 1944. He came to America in infancy [see previous comment] and was a pupil of de Pachmann, who made a stamp on his interpretation, especially of Chopin [no justification has yet been found for calling him a pupil of Pachmann; he actually studied with Rudolf Ganz — see elsewhere on this site]. He appeared with orchestras in Chicago, Minnesota, Detroit, etc. Former member of faculty, Chicago Musical College and Bush Conservatory. Later, Head of Boguslawski College of Music.
