Barzhansky, Adolph Solomonowich

Russian composer and pianist; born at Odessa 1851; died there 1900. His father, a member of a prosperous firm well known both in Russia and abroad, gave him a commercial training; but the young Adolph, who from childhood was drawn to music, soon abandoned business pursuits and went to Vienna, Paris, and Leipsic, where he attended the musical high schools, surprising his masters by his remarkable talent.

Among Barzhansky's numerous compositions may be mentioned: (1) "On the Sea"; (2) "Recollections"; (3) "Cradle-Song"; (4) "Glückliches Heim"; (5) "Scherzo"; and (6) "Andacht." They were all published by Breitkopf & Härtel of Leipsic.
