Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Madeline Schiller (also Madeleine Schiller) (c. 1845, London, England - July 3, 1911, New York City) was an English-born pianist. After early studies in London with Benjamin Isaacs, Julius Benedict, and Charles Hall, in 1860 she went to Leipzig where she studied with Ignaz Moscheles. She made her debut there on January 23, 1862, playing Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1. Among her friends at Leipzig was Arthur Sullivan. She returned to London and performed there and throughout the country until her marriage in 1872 to Marcus Elmer Bennett, who was from Boston, Massachusetts. They moved to the U.S. in 1873, where she quickly became well known for her performances with Theodore Thomas and his orchestra in New York.show more
