Lilly Dymont (1912 - 2007)

Lilly Dymont was born into a musical family on 12 July 1911, in Berlin. Her father, Jakob Dymont (1881–1956) was an esteemed choirmaster, conductor and composer of Jewish liturgical music. Lilly began studies first with her father. Later her primary teacher was eminent Berlin pedagogue Georg Bertram (1882–1941). By her early teens, Lilly Dymont had performed with many prominent European orchestras and under the batons of Leo Blech, Paul van Kempen and William Steinberg. She began recording for Polydor in 1928. After an interview with the Gestapo in 1937, Lilly Dymont made a life-changing decision. She visited the American Embassy in Berlin and contacted a friend in New Hampshire, who arranged a visa for her and her family. In 1938 she moved to the United States, settling in New Bedford, Massachusetts, with her husband Dr Walter V. Mindus. She also changed the spelling of her name to Lily Dumont. As teacher, for over forty years, she was on the faculty of the Longy School of Music in Cambridge. She was founder and longtime president of the New Bedford concert series, and for many years she organized an annual summer seminar for pianists at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. Lily Dumont died on 6 March 2006, at the age of 94. Her recorded legacy includes the early Polydor discs, with the very first recording of Chopin’s Bolero, several recordings for HMV and several early LPs on the Concert Hall Society label.
