Ivo Pogorelich

Ivo Pogorelich’s father played the double bass in a Belgrade orchestra, and the young Ivo was taken to the opera from the age of six, beginning piano lessons a year later. At thirteen he was sent to Moscow to study with Yevgeny Timakhin at the Central Music School. He then went to the Moscow Conservatory where he studied with two pupils of Heinrich Neuhaus, Vera Gornostaeva and Evgeny Malinin. However, Pogorelich was not happy at the Conservatory, finding many of the classes boring; the Conservatory in turn was not over-impressed by Pogorelich. At seventeen he was heard by Alice Kerzeradze who told him he was squandering his talent. Pogorelich began private lessons with Kerzeradze concurrently with his studies at the Moscow Conservatory. Upon his graduation he claimed that he had learnt nothing at the Conservatory and everything from Kerzeradze. At twenty-two he married Kerzeradze who was fourteen years his senior and had a six-year-old son.
