Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lili Kraus was a Hungarian-born British pianist. Lili Kraus was born in Budapest in 1903. Her father was from Czech Lands, and her mother from an assimilated Jewish Hungarian family. She enrolled at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music, and at the age of 17 entered the Budapest Conservatory where she studied with Artur Schnabel, Zolt n Kod ly, and B la Bart k. In the 1930s, she continued her studies with Severin Eisenberger, Eduard Steuermann and Schnabel, who focused her interest in the classical tradition. Lili Kraus soon became known as a specialist in Mozart and Beethoven. Her early chamber music performances and recording with violinist Szymon Goldberg helped gain the critical acclaim that launched her international career. In the 1930s, she toured Europe, Japan, Australia and South Africa. In 1942, Kraus embarked on a tour of Asia where, while in Java, she and her family were captured and interned by the Japanese until the end of World War II.show more
