Eugeny Ivanovich Pomazansky (1883 - 1948)

Eugeny Ivanovich Pomazansky, the son of Ivan Pomazansky and Valentina Liadova, the only and beloved nephew of Anatoly Liadov, studied piano at the Saint Peteresburg Conservatoire; his teacher in composition was Rimsky-Korsakov. Eugeny also studied under Anatoly Liadov and Balakirev. He taught in Saratov, Saint Petersburg/Petrograd/Leningrad and Tomsk, performed as a pianist and gave lectures. In 1940 he founded and took the helm of a music school in Pskov, and was also involved in rebuilding it after the Second World War. He wrote music throughout his life, but almost all of his manuscripts are lost.
