Fanny Davies (1861 - 1934)

Davies grew up in Birmingham, where she received her early musical training from Charles Edwin Flavell who had studied in Frankfurt with Aloys Schmitt (1788–1866). A further year of study in Leipzig, where her teachers included Carl Reinecke, was the precursor to her two years of study with Schumann’s widow, Clara. It was during this time that she learnt the fundamentals of the interpretation and performance of Schumann’s works in the style and tradition of the composer, and also became well acquainted with Brahms. At her London debut Davies played Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 Op. 58 at Crystal Palace, and again played it at the Leipzig Gewandhaus in 1888; on the same programme Tchaikovsky conducted the first performance of his Symphony No. 4 in F minor Op. 36. During the season following her London debut Davies played in six of the ‘Popular Concerts’ (mainly given on Mondays at St James’s Hall from 1859 to 1904) with violinist Joseph Joachim and cellist Alfredo Piatti; Joachim subsequently assisted her in her Berlin debut at the Singakademie.
