Polish pianist, composer and teacher (b. 4 October 1859 in Łazy, near Siedlce; d. December 1921 in Moscow), known in Russia as Geinrikh Albertovich Pakhulsky (Гейнрих Альбертович Пахульский).
The son of Albert Pachulski, a forester on Nadehzda von Meck's estate, Henryk studied at the Warsaw Institute of Music, and later (1880–85) at the Moscow Conservatory, where he was taught by Paul Pabst and Nikolay Rubinstein. His musical development was encouraged by Nadehzda von Meck, whose daughter was married to Henryk's brother, Władysław (d. 1919).
In 1886 he was appointed as professor of piano at the Moscow Conservatory, and he arranged several of Tchaikovsky's works for piano duet.
