Isidor Philipp

Isidor Philipp, a French pianist and teacher of Hungarian descent, was born in Budapest on September 2, 1863. After studying at the Paris Conservatoire, Philipp toured Europe and made his first appearance in London in 1890. From 1930 to 1934, Philipp was professor of Piano at the Conservatoire and garnered an international reputation as a pedagogue. Philipp was especially noted for his countless publications of technical exercises, some of them based on difficult passages from the works of earlier composers for the piano. He settled in the U.S. in 1941, teaching at various schools in New York City, as well as in Montreal. Philipp died in Paris on February 20, 1958.
