Rosa Tamarkina (1920 - 1950)

In the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, in October 1949, a very special concert took place in honour of the centenary of Chopin’s birth. Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto was performed by Rosa Tamarkina (1920–1950)—it was also Tamarkina’s last public appearance for she was to die from cancer in August 1950. Tamarkina was a student of Alexander Goldenweiser and Konstantin Igumnov at the Moscow Conservatory, graduating in 1940. In 1937, the seventeen-year old pianist participated in the Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw, winning the second prize, to Yakov Zak’s first prize. In 1946 Tamarkina began teaching at the Moscow Conservatory, about the same time she was diagnosed with cancer. The painful treatments made performing and recording difficult. Luckily she left an eclectic and powerful recorded legacy, that included works by Rachmaninov, Taneyev, Brahms, Liszt, and, of course, Chopin.
