Olga Samaroff (1880 - 1948)

Not surprisingly, when she knew that her life would be before the public, Lucy Jane Olga Agnes Hickenlooper changed her name to Olga Samaroff. Her first lessons were with her grandmother, who had been a concert pianist, but as the child’s talent developed, her family decided to move to Paris. Olga, her brother George, their mother and grandmother set sail for Europe, the mother and brother staying for only part of the first year, and the father taking his leave at New York. Olga joined the class of Elie Delaborde at the Paris Conservatoire, the first American woman to enter this famous music school. Moving to Berlin in 1898 to continue her musical training she took private piano lessons with Ernst Jedliczka who had trained at the Moscow Conservatory under Anton and Nicolas Rubinstein.Whilst in Berlin she became acquainted with Richard Strauss, Felix Weingartner and Arthur Nikisch. During the autumn of 1900 she married Boris Loutzky in Berlin, abandoning thoughts of a career as a pianist to become the wife of a Russian naval attaché. However, the marriage did not last long; Olga realised she had made a mistake and in 1904 returned to America.
