Robert Goldsand

Robert Goldsand (March 17, 1911 – September 16, 1991) was an Austrian-American classical pianist.


Goldsand was born in [4]


Goldsand taught legions of students during his long tenure at the Manhattan School, as an Internet search for his name quickly reveals. Among the more celebrated were Harris Goldsmith [10] Goldsand's passion for Beethoven was likely a major influence on his pupils, particularly in the case of Dr Kevin Moore, a prominent professor of piano at OCC college in upstate New York. Dr Moore has performed all 32 of Beethoven's piano sonata's, in local performances to the public, which have become immensely popular.


Most of Goldsand's recordings appeared on the American Concert Hall Society label. Later, Goldsand recorded for the American Desto and Decca labels. Very few of these LP issues have reappeared on compact disc.


He died of diabetes in a Danbury, Connecticut nursing home, in 1991.
