a Russian composer, pianist, conductor, and folk-song collector. Kaschin was born the son of a serf of General Bibikov. He was a student of Giuseppe Sarti in Bessarabia in 1788. In 1790, he performed two of his own works in Moscow with a serf orchestra; Kashin went on to direct this ensemble in the 1790s. He was liberated from serfdom in 1798, and thereafter was one of the more important players in the musical life of Moscow. He often conducted concerts involving extremely large forces - choirs of 300 and orchestras of 200 players.
