K. was born in 1903 in Vitebsk, White Russia.

His father was a tradesman.

He learned in a cheder and with private tutors. In 1922, after the citizen-war [the Revolution?], K. studied vocal singing in Moscow in the music school, and in 1924, when Clara Young guest-starred in Russia, he was there and was active as a chorus singer and actor of small roles. Thanks to his outstanding tenor voice, he was quickly called on to take on more responsibility with greater singing roles, and he performed with Clara Young until 1928.

In 1929, K. performed in the Ukrainian State Theatre with a small form group, "Gezbult", and was there thought of in a considerable fashion.

K. was the husband of Yeva Sharavner.

His fate is unknown.
