A unique film about these pianists there is on Youtube - check the name of the uploader: rosinafanboy

I heard that Rosina and Josef Lhevinne helped Alexander Siloti a lot - when somebody wanted to let him go from Julliard, they said that they would rather give their salaries for him, only let him stay - they knew what a great man he was!

The film is called The Legacy of Rosina Lhevinne

This Award winning film offers a revealing and compelling portrait of the life and achievements of the legendary Rosina Lhevinne who is regarded as one of the great pianist, master/teachers of all time. Through intimate conversations and stunning performances we will witness her inspiring growth, particularly from age 65 to 96. And we will observe how she taught and influenced some of the world's most celebrated musicians as James Levine, John Williams and Van Cliburn.
