  • -  Serge Koussevitzky (b. July 26, 1874, Vishniĭ Volochek, Russia - d. June 4, 1951, Boston, Mass.) was a conductor, composer, and double-bassist. He was an innovator and visionary in his roles as a composer, music director, music publisher, recording artist, champion of contemporary music, and supporter of musicians' rights. He founded the Berkshire Music Center (now Tanglewood Music Center) in 1940, and as conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1924 to 1949, he championed the music of American composers. His publishing house, Édition Russe de Musique, issued music by Scriabin, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and Rachmaninoff.
