Working with Tonguing Technique

Leon Russianoff, a clarinetist who taught at the Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of Music, died Sunday at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. He was 73 years old and lived in Manhattan. He died after a brief illness, his family said. Born in Brooklyn in 1916, Mr. Russianoff began studying the clarinet at the age of 14 and later won a scholarship to study with Simeon Bellison, then the first clarinetist of the New York Philharmonic. He started teaching professionally in 1938, when he graduated from the City College of New York.

In addition to his positions at the Manhattan School, where he taught for 35 years, and the Juilliard School, where he had been on the faculty since 1970, Mr. Russianoff also taught at Teachers College, Brooklyn College, Queens College, the State University College at Purchase, Catholic University and the 92d Street Y’s music school. His students included Stanley Drucker, the first clarinetist of the New York Philharmonic, and the soloist Charles Neidich.

Mr. Russianoff is survived by his wife, Penelope; a daughter, Sylvia, of Philadelphia; a son, Charles, of Royal Palm Beach, Fla., and two grandchildren.
