Genia Nemenoff (Piano)

Born: October 23, 1905 - Paris, France
Died: September 16, 1989 - New York City, New York, USA

The French-born pianist, Genia Nemenoff, began her performing career accompanying singers. In 1931, she married the pianist pianist Pierre Luboshutz, who had been her teacher, and the couple moved to New York. In 1937, they made their debut at Town Hall as a duo piano team. Howard Taubman, reviewing the concert in The New York Times, wrote that ''their playing had coordination, boyancy and grace, and on occasion it was searching in its grasp of feeling and flavor.''

Pierre Luboshutz and Genia Nemenoff toured widely in the 1940's and 1950's, giving more than 800 performances in the USA before they returned to Europe to make their joint debut in 1952. They toured much of the world, and worked to expand the duet repertory by transcribing such works as W.A. Mozart's Magic Flute Overture, J.S. Bach concertos, and Fritz Kreisler miniatures. They also gave the premieres of concertos composed for them by Bohuslav Martinu and Vittorio Giannini.

Genia Nemenoff died of heart failure in 1989 at her home in Manhattan. She was 84 years old.
