Carl Friedberg

Photograph, Carl Friedberg, pianistCarl Friedberg was born September 18, 1872 in Bingen-am-Rhein, Germany. He began studying music in 1876 and then moved to Frankfurt in the early 1880s for further study, including occasional lessons from Clara Schumann. He was also coached by Johannes Brahms in the performance of Brahms' piano works. Friedberg soon established himself as a much-sought-after teacher and began concertizing throughout Europe.

In 1914, Friedberg made his first appearance in the U.S. Soon thereafter, he joined the faculty of the Institute for Musical Arts, which later became the Juilliard School.

Friedberg's only studio recordings date from 1953 (two years before his death) and have now been reissued on CD by Marston Records together with additional live and studio performances.

Friedberg died on September 9th, 1955.
