About

With his "Chopin Marathon" Alexander Brailowsky (b. 1896, Kiev; d. 1976, New York) carved his name into European concert history: for the first time ever he played about 170 Chopin compositions on six consecutive evenings in Paris in 1924. The reaction of the public was as overwhelming, as when he repeated the feat in New York later that year. On the occasion of Chopinís 150th birthday in 1960 Brailowsky performed this marathon a third and fourth time in New York and Brussels. It was in the Belgian capital that a special Brailowsky Prize for pianists had been awarded in 1936 and also where, marked by illness, he made his last public appearance in 1972 as a jury member of the Queen Elisabeth Competition. After graduating with a gold medal at the Conservatory in Kiev and special praise from Sergei Rachmaninov, who heard him during a student audition, Brailowsky continued his studies with Theodor Leschetizky after his family moved to Vienna in 1911, where he also gave his successful public debut two years later. After his triumphant concerts in New York's Carnegie Hall, he settled permanently in the United States in 1924. Due to his declining health, he ended his career with two farewell concerts there in 1967.
