 Update me on new releases by Sapellnikov

Vassily Sapellnikov (1868 - 1941)

Sapellnikov’s father, Leo, was conductor of the Odessa Opera Company. He taught his son to play the violin so that by the age of seven young Vassily made his public debut as a violinist, not as a pianist. It was Vassily’s mother who taught him to play the piano, and when the great Russian pianist Anton Rubinstein heard the eleven-year-old Sapellnikov play the piano at the Odessa Conservatory he was so impressed that he insisted the piano was the instrument he should concentrate on. With the help of Rubinstein’s generous efforts, the city of Odessa granted Sapellnikov an annual stipend enabling the thirteen-year-old boy to study at the St Petersburg Conservatory for two years with Louis Brassin, and then for three years with Sophie Menter.
