Edwin Fischer (1886 - 1960)

Both of Edwin Fischer’s parents were musical and their talented son began piano lessons at the age of four. At ten, Fischer entered the Basle Conservatory where he studied with the composer Hans Huber. When Fischer was eighteen his father died, so his mother, with whom he had a close relationship, took him to Berlin to study at the Stern Conservatory with Liszt pupil Martin Krause, who would later teach Claudio Arrau. Whilst in Berlin Fischer made his concerto debut with the Piano Concerto No. 2 by Eugen d’Albert who was greatly impressed and offered advice and help in his career to the young pianist. After a period of teaching at the Stern Conservatory, Fischer gave recitals and at this time appeared with such eminent conductors as Willem Mengelberg, Arthur Nikisch, and Bruno Walter. He toured in Europe and Britain, but gave only a limited number of concerts.
