Josef Lhevinne (1874 - 1944)

Josef Lhévinne was the ninth child of Arkady Levin who was a trumpeter from Łódź. Young Josef was a prodigy, playing the piano at three, and from the age of six was having lessons with a local Swedish-born piano teacher and choir director named Nils Krysander. At eleven he played Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight’ Sonata and the Pilgrim’s March from Wagner’s Tannhäuser arranged by Liszt at a soirée where the Grand Duke Constantine was present. The Duke asked Josef if he wanted to study at the Moscow Conservatory and at Josef’s affirmative answer the Duke spoke to a wealthy banker known for his munificence. Josef’s father requested Vassily Safonov as the piano teacher for his son at the Conservatory, and Josef received daily lessons at which his whole approach to piano playing was drastically altered.
