More about My Professor -
Representative of Russian Piano School -
Russian pianist who shared prize with Sviatoslav Richter has died, aged 94 December 20, 2012
My Dearest Professor - Professor Merzhanov (1919-2012), the Master of Russian Piano School, was leaving us on 20 December 2012 forever. I believe all people who love him must feel sad at this moment. He has been working at the Moscow Conservatory for 65 years, until his last day on the earth, at the age of 94. As an active concert performer (he performed more than 2000 concerts) and devoted piano educator, he trained lots of outstanding musicians from decades to decades. It is precious and honored to be his student. He teaches me how to be a contributing musician.Professor Merzhanov, thank you very much! I will not forget you. I love you forever.
With Deepest Love,
Your student - Joanna Li
