Lenore Engdahl (1921 - 2008)

Lenore Caroline Engdahl was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 8 April 1918. Her parents were Swedish immigrants Walfred and Augusta EJ Engdahl. Her first music lessons were with her mother. She then studied at the MacPhail School of Music in Minneapolis with Elsie Wolf-Campbell. After two years of serious study she won the Countess Helena Morsztyn Scholarship. A group of far-sighted Twin City music-lovers heard the young pianist and raised a fund that would enable her to continue her studies abroad with the Countess. World War II cut short the trip but not the years of extensive study. She made her New York début on 30 March 1942 at the Carnegie Chamber Music Hall. After a much-praised town hall début on 22 October 1944 (that featured works by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Chopin, Kirby, Richter and Pizzetti) she embarked on a series of annual recital tours and appearances with American orchestras. She has known, worked and travelled with such artists as Emery Darcy and Marisa Morel, Maria Carreras, Sigismund Stojowski, Hans Barth, Dimitri Mitropoulos and Bronisław Huberman. Her private “good luck” piece is a dainty handkerchief Paderewski gave his sister, who in turn presented it to Ms Engdahl as a token of her personal esteem and friendship. She resided in Minneapolis (where she taught at the MacPhail School of Music), and divided her time between the piano, concertizing, and raising her three children. She taught at the Boston University School of Music (1972–1983) and privately until 2010. She now resides in Arlington,
