PIERRE LUBOSCHUTZ - PIANIST

Autographed and inscribed postcard photograph of the Russian, later American concert pianist, November 17, 1915.

Luboschutz (1891-1971) was part of a musical family including his sisters violinist Lea and cellist and Anna. He graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in 1912 after spending his years there with master pedagogue and pianist Konstantin Igumnov. The three siblings formed the Luboschutz Trio and performed widely in Russia and Germany. In Germany they were known as the Lieboschtz Trio. He made his concert debut with orchestra in 1912 at the Conservatory with Serge Koussevitzky. After graduation he studied in Paris with Edouard Risler. Luboschutz in addition to his solo engagements found regular work as an accompanist with cellist Gregor Piatigorsky, double bassist Serge Koussevitzky, violinists Efrem Zimbalist and Paul Kochanski and even modern dancer Isadora Duncan.  Luboschutz was also in demand in America as a concert artist and played the Brahms D minor concerto in 1935 with Toscanini and the NBC Symphony.  He married French born pianist Genia Nemenoff (1905-1989) in 1931 and they became a professional piano duo concert team as of 1937.  Nemenoff originally was an accompanist.  When they made their Town Hall debut in NYC they received rave reviews, which led to over 800 concerts throughout the United States.  They made their European debut as a duo in 1952.  Occasionally they would play with three pianists adding his nephew (Lea's son) Boris Goldovsky to the team.

The earliest autographed photograph we have seen of Luboschutz.
