Rubin Goldmark (August 15, 1872, New York City - March 6, 1936, New York City) was a Jewish American composer, pianist, and educator. He studied composition with Robert Fuchs at the Vienna Conservatory, and later with Antonín Dvořák at the National Conservatory in New York.
Goldmark taught composition at the National Conservatory of New York and at the College Conservatory in Colorado, and spent the last twelve years of his life as head of the composition department at Juilliard. His students included Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Alfred Newman, Paul Nordoff, and Frederick Jacobi, and thus Rubin Goldmark helped link the 19th-century European Romantic music to 20th-century American music.
He also undertook many tours in the USA and Canada, during which he gave recitals and lectured on music. Rubin Goldmark's compositions include a string quartet, a piano trio, a violin sonata, several orchestral pieces, piano music, and songs. His Piano Quartet in A, Op.9, won the 1909 Paderewski Prize for chamber music. However, none of his music remains in the standard repertory.
