They are celebrating 100 years since pianist and teacher Flier's birth.

Flier was Igumnov's students and there are stories how Igumnov cried when he heard Flier playing something (probably Romantic repertoire).

There was Vladimir Feltsman remembering his teacher. Among other things he remembered how Flier was on jury in  Chopin competition and Martha Algerich did not make it on the third round. Flier simply left and didn't leave his hotel room until she was in the  third round and she went on to win it of course.

He also remembered that when he developed interest in Bach Flier told him to go and listen to different recordings and read books. He didn't want to influence him becasue he didn't feel as secure in that repertoire .I think there was beginning of period instrument movement then.

Tis is in Russisan.

Father of Feltsman is very famous composer (wrote songs). He siad that he had no questions where his son has to study. Maxim Shostakovich studied with him too.

Here is documentary about Flier and he is with his teacher Flier.

Oborin, Babajanyn, Bella Davidovich among others were Igumnov's students (and may I add my teacher Egorov was his student too).
