Lev Oborin (1907 - 1974)

Lev Oborin’s father was an engineer. At the age of eight Oborin entered the Gnessin School where he studied with Elena Gnesina. After graduating, he joined the class of Konstantin Igumnov at the Moscow Conservatory where he also studied composition with Nikolai Myaskovsky, Gyorgy Conus and Gyorgy Catoire. At the Conservatory he also studied conducting with Konstantin Saradzhev, and later with Bruno Walter and Hermann Abendroth. At the age of nineteen and while still a post-graduate student of Igumnov, Oborin won first prize at the first International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. Other participants that year included Grigory Ginzburg and Jakob Gimpel. One of the works he played at his graduation recital from the Conservatory was Beethoven’s Piano Sonata in B flat Op. 106 ‘Hammerklavier’. The following year he began teaching at the Moscow Conservatory and remained on the staff for the rest of his life.
