Nathalie Janotha (1856–1932)

Born in Warsaw, Nathalie Janotha already played as a seven-year-old Bach, Beethoven and Chopin. Her father at young age was friends with Liszt, Thalberg and Rubinstein. Janotha later studied at the Berlin Academy of Music, in the summer of 1871 even with Clara Schumann, with whom she later continued to take classes. She was a classmate of Eugenie Schumann with Ernst Rudorff, who tried in vain to get the temperament of the Polish in control, but finally couldn’t resist her charm and could not be angry of her for very long.
Nathalie Janotha concerted successfully in most European countries, but also in America, where she was even invited to the White House. In the late 1870s, George Bernard Shaw proclaimed her in London as the successor to Clara Schumann, with whom she also performed together, but when he heard her in 1892, he was extremely disappointed by her playing.
