This collection consists of correspondence, photographs, and newspaper clippings from Gottfried Galston.
Gottfried Galston, born in Vienna in 1879, completed his studies under Schenner at the Vienna Conservatory at the age of fifteen and then became a pupil of Theodore Leschetizky with whom he remained for five years. In 1903, he was appointed Professor at the Stern Conservatory in Berlin where he taught until 1907.
In that year he began his famous Cycle Concert, a series of five recitals devoted to the great masters Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Bach, and Brahms, which gave him great prominence in the performance world. He made his first appearance in the United States during 1912-1913 season.
In 1927, Galston settled in St. Louis, Missouri, where he taught at the St. Louis Institute of Music. He resided in St. Louis until his death in 1950.
