Brahms: Ballades Op.10, Nos. 1 and 2
by Martin Canin
Martin Canin (1930 to 2019) was an American pianist and academician. Martin Canin was born in 1930 in Queen's, New York City, USA. His father originated from England and his mother from Russia, both settling in the Queen's neighbourhood of New York City. He first studied piano at the Music School of the Henry Street Settlement (between the ages of 7 and 17), and then went to the Juilliard School, where he studied under the eminent pedagogue Rosina Lhevinne. He then became his teacher's assistant from 1959 until formally joining the faculty there himself in 1976 and teaching piano (he retired from the institution in 2016, and during that period also taught at Teachers College, Columbia University). Canin had earlier joined the faculty of Stony Brook University in 1965 as artist-in-residence (finally standing down in 1993), and also taught at the annual Bowdoin International Music Festival for four decades. He was on the jury of numerous piano competitions across those same years, and gave many recitals and master classes throughout the world during his career. As a pianist, he recorded many of the works of Johannes Brahms for 'Spectrum Records', and edited selections of French music for the label 'Editions Salabert'. Martin Canin died in Rhinebeck, New York, on May 9th 2019, aged 88. His brother Stuart was also a notable musician (as a violinist), and he leaves one daughter from his only marriage to Beverly (who also survives him).

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
