Walter Rummel (1887 - 1953)

Walter Morse Rummel came from a long line of musicians. His great-grandfather, Christian (1787– 1849) was from Bavaria and a conductor of the court orchestra of the Duke of Nassau. Walter’s grandfather was August Rummel (1824–1886) who settled in London, whilst his father Franz (1853– 1901) studied piano with Louis Brassin in Brussels, and after a career which took him through Europe and the United States, taught at the Stern Conservatory in Berlin.

Rummel studied first with his father, but when he was only fourteen his father died. His mother was Cornelia Livingston Morse, daughter of American inventor and painter Samuel F.B. Morse. At the death of his father, his mother decided to move to be near her brother in Washington DC. Rummel continued his piano studies in Washington with Samuel Monroe Fabian, a pupil of Liszt and Moszkowski. He returned to Berlin in 1904 to study with Leopold Godowsky for four years and also studied composition with Hugo Kaun.
