Pianist. Born Osip Solomonovich Gabrilovich in Saint Petersburg, Russia. He studied the piano and composition at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, and after graduating in 1894, he spent two years studying piano Vienna, Austria. From 1910 to 1914, he served as conductor of the Munich Philharmonic, and in 1917 he was arrested as an alien Jew following a pogrom.
