Comments
Born in a portion of the Ukraine that was than part of the Russian Empire, Tiomkin left the country after the Russian revolution as the revolution had not been good for the careers of classical pianists. Tiomkin ultimately ended up in Hollywood where he composed scores for over 150 films, winning four Academy Awards for his work.
