My piano teacher line back to Beethoven


Recommended Posts

A friend of a friend had done research into pianists/composers Austin Conradi and Liszt's pupil Stavenhagen. Turns out they have a lineage that led to my piano teacher. Sort of interesting.

That is pretty cool. I often hear of some people who studied with ⦠who studied with someone famous like that.

Thanks for the comments, folks! I know that with the number of teachers and pupils many people can make the claim of their "lineage" going back to Beethoven or Liszt. And some people on the Piano World forum responded to my post there with examples of their "lineage" which I thought was quite interesting. Others were a bit dismissive with comments that it wasn't really interesting since many people can make that claim. That wasn't the point. I discovered new insight into pianists like Ernest Hutchenson and his relationship with Gershwin; or Austin Conradi's repertoire and career.

 

Then again there was an entire thread on that forum devoted to the same subject. So there is interest. Another poster had a similar lineage to mine up to Bernard Stavenhagen (a Liszt pupil) but he started it earlier with Bach > Homilus > Hiller > Neefe > Beethoven, etc.

 

Someone posted a cool link if anyone is interested -
