Classical Piano Performance Preparation—
Leschetizky to Raab
The Juilliard School
This is a brief synopsis of my biography. My primary piano performance Professor was Wanda Krasoff. She was recommended by Josef Hofmann to study with Professor Alexander Raab.
He studied at the Vienna Conservatory of Music, and his Professor was Leschetizky. He was also good friends with Brahms in Vienna (my Professor showed me the original photo at a piano lesson).
My Professor Krasoff was endorsed by Arthur Rubinstein and many other prominent concert pianists.
I also studied with many other excellent classical piano performance Professors, including my mother—The Juilliard School.
Wanda Krasoff, Pianist and Professor:
Reviewed by Harold C. Schonberg, The New York Times
“ Her interpretations commanded respect for their general musicianship and efficiency. Miss Krasoff left no doubt she is an accomplished artist and a fine musician. ”
