“Alan D. Marks, an American pianist living in Germany who was presented in recitals at the 92d Street Y and other New York concert halls, made his début at Carnegie Recital Hall in 1971 while still a student at the Juilliard School. He was born in Chicago and grew up in St. Louis. A student of Leon Fleisher and Benjamin Kaplan, he performed as soloist with orchestras around the country and in Europe, Japan and Israel. He also accompanied other musicians, and taught at the Y. He moved to Berlin in 1981 where he held a professorship at the Hanns Eisler College of Music from 1992 until his early death in 1995.”
