AARON AVSHALOMOV [composer/conductor]. Siberia, 1894-Portland, OR, 1964. Avshalomov developed an approach that grafted elements of traditional Chinese musicwhich he had first encountered as a child among the Chinese community of his Siberian home- townonto a colorful Russian style in the manner of Rimsky- Korsakov. He used the Western-oriented symphony orchestra to imitate and evoke sounds of traditional Chinese instru- ments, and he also transcribed characteristic ornamentations and used such instruments as temple blocks and finger cymbals. His only musical studies were in Zurich and he then resided in Shanghai, excepting a few years in the U.S. and elsewhere, until 1946. He then permanently moved to Portland, OR, where his son, Jacob, was conductor of the Portland Symphony. American Composers Alliance website. 3507. 12 PW Columbia Master Works Set 286 (68870-D

He was a musical director for the Emerson Phonograph Company and in the later 1920s for Columbia. Here he recorded as a piano accompanist for several singers, including Alexander Kipnis. Later he worked for MGM in Hollywood as a music researcher and librarian. Bergh composed over 400 works in various genres.

LEO BLECH [conductor] dir. BERLIN STATE OPERA ORCHESTRA. Aachen, 1871-1958. Blech studied at the Berlin Hochschule fr Musik and with com- poser Engelbert Humperdinck. His long term conducting included the German Opera in Prague (1899-1906), the Berlin State Opera (1906-1923), the Charlottenburg Opera (1923-25) and then again the Berlin State Opera (1926-1937). Despite being Jewish, he was permitted to conduct in Germany following 1933 by having been made an honorary Aryan, although while guest conductiong in Riga in the later 1930s he was warned not to return to Germany. He re- mained with the Riga Opera until 1941 and then moved to Sweden, where he conducted the Stockholm Royal Opera. He ended his career by returning to the Berlin Opera, 1949- 1954. In addition to his success as an operatic and symphonic conductor, Blech was also a recognized composer in a variety of idioms, his opera Versiegelt (1908) having experienced international performances.

He then taught at his Odessa alma mater until 1920 and toured the next eight years. In 1928 he made ten sides for Columbia in New York (his only solo recordings) around the time of his April 10, 1928 Carnegie Hall debut and then remained in New York for two years on the Juilliard School faculty. He subsequently became concert master of the San Francisco Symphony and was also noted as a teacher. Perhaps his most illustrious pupil was Isaac Stern, who made his debut at the age of 15, playing the Bach Double Concerto with his teacher. Glenn Dicterow was also a pupil. At one point Blinder had 17 students as members of the San Francisco Symphony and the entire first violin section of the Oakland Symphony.

RENE CHEMET [violinist]. Boulogne- sur-Seine, 1888- ? . Chemet studied with Berthelier and then became first violinist of the Cologne Orchestra, marrying pianist Camille Decreus in 1909. She subsequently became a soloist and performed with Nikisch, Wood, Men- gelberg and other major conductors. Chemet performed internationally and was particularly successful in the U.S. from 1921 to 1932. She was cited by the NY Times reviewer of a 1923 Aeolian Hall concert as a player of vivid tem- perament, of constant light and shade, yet broadly grounded in contrasting styles. Earlier she had been an assisting artist in an Emma Calv tour and later she was particularly suc- cessful on the radio. 1n 1932 she was enthu- siastically received in a tour of Japan. This also marked the year of her last recordings and seemingly her disappearance as well, one source mentioning that she vanished in the Far East, although it has been determined the she was living and likely teaching in Paris in the earlier 1950s.
