"How I met my Teacher" personal reflections on a formative relationship compiled and edited by Masha Buell Pianist Christina Petrowska Quilico remembers Rosina Lhevinne when he won the Picrured here wirh composer Ann Southam, pianisr Christina Petrowska Qui/ico FROM THE AGE OF 8 [ was a piano student of Boris Berlin at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. By lO I had made my debut with the Conservatory Orchestra in the Haydn piano concerto and had been giving solo recitals. Glenn Gould was the pianist who inspired me intellectually and I was fascinated by his recordings of Alban Berg and Arnold Schoenberg. One of the turning points in my life, however, was hearing Van Cliburn play the Rachmaninoff 3rd and the Tchaikowsky I st piano concertos Tchaikowsky International Competition. New York honoured him with a ticker-tape parade. His performance and the excite­ ·ment surround- ing his win intrigued me and I was determined one day to study with his teacher, the legendary Rosina Lhevinne. Boris Berlin was a wonderful teacher who recognized my love for both contemporary and romantic music. When I was 14 and had completed the ARCT he encouraged me to go to New York and audition for the Juilliard School - Mr. Berlin knew one of the teachers at Juilliard, Irwi"n Freundlich. I auditioned for him and for Juilliard and received a scholarship. I was enrolled at the High School of Performing Arts and began lessons at Juilliard. Mr. Freundlich with his Germanic background was a MARJORIE SPARKS VOICE STUDIO MARJORIC SPARKS, SOPRANO S.MU.S. S. ro.

I still longed, however, to work with the great Lhevinne and after 3 years auditioned for her. Mme Lhevinne's studio, close to Juilliard, was imbued with an atmosphere of the Romantic Piano Tradition. There were photographs of all the pianists who worked with her and the great Russian pianists like Rachmaninoff, Horowitz and, of course, (husband) Josef Lhevinne. We called her Madame Lhevinne and she was truly unique. She was a tiny.woman with a thick Russian accent. We were all quite terrified of her. I remember my first lessons with her extremely well. She demanded I learn massive amounts of repertoire, memorized every week. I practised 8 hours or more a day. She took no pity and said it was a handy skill to have.
