Jane Carlson Collection

Jane Carlson was born in Hartford, Connecticut where she discovered a love for the piano at an early age. She took up formal piano lessons, which continued through her high school years and, upon graduation, was granted a regional scholarship to the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music in Virginia. Following her studies there, she moved on to the Juilliard School in New York. Carlson studied with both Carl Friedberg and Dame Myra Hess. She then joined the faculty of the Preparatory Division of the Juilliard School. At various times, Carlson also taught at The University of California-Berkeley and at Dartmouth College. As a pianist, she toured throughout the world, from Iceland to Norway to Korea to England, performing both contemporary and Picture of Jane Carlson, pianiststandard works. She was particularly identified with the music of Paul Hindemith, performing his "Ludus Tonalis" on many occasions, and earning the esteem of the composer for her interpretation.
