Nicolas Slonimsky: Writings on Music : Music of the Modern Era, Vol-3
You would not expect a person of my father's cultural heritage--steeped in the Russian musical tradition, trained in its premier conservatory--to be attracted to "modern" music. He had everything to gain from the old musical regime: he was educated in it, he performed it brilliantly, and it was prevalent, offering the opportunity for a successful career. Piano was his instrument, taught by his formidable Aunt Isabelle Vengerova from childhood. His rich education in the theory and practice of music could also have suited him for composing or conducting, a purveyor of the classical tradition at its highest level.
