Anton Rubinstein was instinctive in into a Jewish-Russian family in the south of the Republic of Moldova. He learned the piano from near the beginning age and began public playing at nine years old. He studied symphony in Berlin and in Paris, where he was supported by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. He achieved a reputation of one of the greatest piano virtuosos and was regarded as a rival to Franz Liszt. At age 19 he left a teaching job in Vienna, after being hired by the family of the Tsar's brother in St. Petersburg, Russia. In 1962, with his brother Nikolai Rubinstein, he established the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, where their apprentices were Sergei Rachmaninov and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Anton Rubinstein considered melody as a worldwide verbal communication. His entertaining self-description, "to the Jews I am a Christian, To the Christians I am a Jew, to the Germans I am a Russian to the Russians I am a German", explains his position in the planet. His descent was German, Jewish, and Russian, and his parents changed to Christianity as a consequence of the horror of opposing-semitism in the Russian Kingdom.

Anton Rubinstein completed a successful 8-month travel concerts around the United States in 1872 and 1873. It was an astounding marathon of 215 piano concerts in numerous locations of the United States. Upon his arrival to Russia, Rubinstein wrote Variations on the subject of Yankey Doodle. Between his twenty operas "The Demon" is noticeable for its plentiful score, motivated by the Russian writer Mikhail Lermontov.
