“Lev Petrovich Steinberg (3 September 1870 - Moscow 16 January 1945) was a Russian conductor and composer who was invited by Diaghilev to both Paris and London in 1914. He founded the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra in 1943.�
“Galina Barinova was for a time one of the Soviet Union’s star violinist, born in 1910 in St Petersburg and studied with Paul Kochanski amongst others, though later gravitated to Thibaud in Paris. At the age of twenty-seven she took third place in the All-Soviet Union violin competition, but it was in the post-War years that her career took off.�
