Elly Ney (1882 - 1968)

The strongest early musical influence on Elly Ney came from her grandmother, who loved the music of Beethoven. When the child was five her father retired from the army and took a position on the town council in Bonn, and at the age of ten Ney was taken to play for Dr Franz Wüllner, principal of the Cologne Conservatory. He placed her under the tuition of Isidor Seiss, himself a pupil of Friedrich Wieck, father of Clara Schumann. After nine years of study with Seiss, Ney won the Mendelssohn Prize in Berlin and decided she wanted to study with Theodor Leschetizky in Vienna, her motivation for this move being the fact that Leschetizky had studied with Czerny, who in turn had studied with Beethoven. Ney’s final teacher was Emil von Sauer, one of Liszt’s greatest pupils.
