 Update me on new releases by Balsam

Artur Balsam (1906 - 1994)

Primarily known as a chamber music player, Balsam studied at the Conservatory in Łodź and then at the Hochschule in Berlin. In 1930 he won first prize at the International Piano Competition in Berlin, and the following year the Mendelssohn Prize for chamber music with violinist Roman Totenberg in Munich. He had made his solo debut at the age of twelve, but went on to forge a career as a chamber music player and accompanist to many of the greatest musicians of the time. In 1932 he toured the USA with the fourteen-year-old Yehudi Menuhin, settling there when the Nazis took power in Germany. Balsam toured Europe and North America and in 1933 married Ruth Miller (1906–1999) who was also a pianist from Łodź. During the late 1930s he toured as the partner of violinist Nathan Milstein, and other notable musicians with whom he collaborated were Szymon Goldberg, Erica Morini, Joseph Fuchs, Joseph Szigeti, David Oistrakh, Leonid Kogan, Mstislav Rostropovich, Zino Francescatti, and the Budapest and Kroll Quartets.
