Alexander ZilotiDear Jack,
Alexander Ziloti, a student of Franz Liszt, a cousin of Rachmaninoff, was a renowned Russian pianist, a major influence in pre-revolutionary Russian musical life, and a teacher. He was a professor at the Juilliard Shool in NYC and was a good friend of my family. I took this photo in 1958 when on a visit to the cemetery with his daughter, Kiriena. His excellent and detailed biography was published a few years ago.
