Lubimov, Alexei

Lubimov, Alexei, esteemed Russian pianist and fortepianist; b. Moscow, Sept. 16,1944. Following initial instruction at the Moscow Central Music School, he entered the Moscow Cons, in 1963 and studied with Neuhaus. He first attracted notice with his compelling performances of modern scores. In 1968 he gave the Moscow premieres of works by John Cage and Terry Riley, and subsequently championed the works of such masters as Schoenberg, Ives, Webern, Stockhausen, Boulez, and Ligeti, as well as many contemporary Russian composers. His interests were extensive, leading him to explore not only contemporary works but those from the standard repertoire as well as the early music repertoire for fortepiano. He made regular tours of Europe before making his North American debut as soloist with Andrew Parrott and the Classical Band in N.Y. in 1991.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
