Arthur Friedheim (1859 - 1932)

Friedheim’s father was an Imperial army officer of Prussian descent. By the age of six, young Arthur was being taught piano by Carl Siecke, a pupil of Anton Rubinstein, whilst his debut at the age of nine was with a piano concerto by John Field. At fourteen he continued lessons in composition and harmony with Siecke but began taking tuition in piano from Anton Rubinstein. Four years later, in August 1878, Friedheim arrived in Weimar to study with Franz Liszt, becoming not only a pupil of the great master but also his close friend and secretary. After Liszt’s death Friedheim lived in Leipzig from where he toured Europe (including Finland) and Russia promoting Liszt’s compositions, also occasionally appearing as a conductor. His first tour of England was in 1889, where he was appointed professor at the Royal Manchester College of Music, a post he held until 1904.
