Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Anatole Kitain was an exact contemporary and fellow pupil of Vladimir Horowitz in Kiev, where he studied, as did Simon Barere, with Felix Blumenfeld. All three developed fabulous techniques and were romantic pianists in the grand manner, and each fled Russia after the revolution. That Kitain is the least known can only be put down to misfortune as these recordings attest to a pianist of fabulous talent. Sadly he failed to 'make it' after his emigration to the USA and slowly faded from view, giving his last New York concert in 1963.
