d'Albert, Eugen (1864–1932)

Educated in Britain, d'Albert showed early musical talent and, at the age of seventeen, he won a scholarship to
study in Austria. Feeling a kinship with German culture and music, he soon emigrated to Germany, where he
studied with Franz Liszt and began a career as a concert pianist. D'Albert repudiated his early training and
upbringing in England and considered himself German.
While pursuing his career as a pianist, d'Albert focused increasingly on composing, producing 21 operas and a
considerable output of piano, vocal, chamber and orchestral works. His most successful opera was Tiefland,
which premiered in Prague in 1903. His successful orchestral works included his cello concerto (1899), a
symphony, two string quartets and two piano concertos. In 1907, d'Albert became the director of the Hochschule
für Musik in Berlin, where he exerted a wide influence on musical education in Germany. He also held the post
of Kapellmeister to the Court of Weimar.
D'Albert was married six times, including to the pianist-singer Teresa Carreño, and was successively a British,
German and Swiss citizen.
