Adelina De Lara was born in Carlisle, England in 1872. She was one of Clara Schumann's final pupils, during the years of 1886 to 1891. De Lara made her London debut in 1891. She mainly played Schumann's works and was also the Vice President of the Society of Women Musicians. Late in her life, she made an extensive series of recordings encompassing most of Robert Schumann's major piano works and also published her memoirs. De Lara gave her farewell London performance in 1954. She died in 1961.
