* Saratov Conservatory was founded in 1912, and was the first provincial conservatory to be founded in Russia, after St Petersburg Conservatory and Moscow Conservatory. Saratov was, at the time, Russia's third city. Since 1935 the Conservatory has taken the honorary name of the tenor Leonid Sobinov.
