Background
Alexander Siloti (1863-1945) was a Russian-born pianist, conductor and arranger. He studied at the Moscow Conservatory and after graduating went to Leipzig, Germany to study under Franz Liszt. Siloti taught at the Moscow Philharmonic and worked as an editor for Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky. He married Vera Tretyakova, the daughter of the industrialist Pavel Tretyakova and toured Europe and America with his wife and children from 1892-1900. He organized, financed, and conducted the Siloti Concerts in St Petersburg, introducing many important and influential musicians and composers. He was Intendant at the Mariinsky Theatre and briefly a teacher at the Petrograd Conservatory before fleeing from what had become the Soviet Union to Finland. Siloti eventually moved to America and taught at the Julliard School.
