Delphine von Schauroth and the Nineteenth-Century Woman Artist

A Department of Music FARLS talk by Dr. Amanda Lalonde (PhD)
with recorded performances by Kennedy Kosheluk

In musicological scholarship, the 19th-century pianist and composer Delphine von Schauroth (c. 1814-1887) usually appears only as an aside, a flirtatious pre-marital distraction for Felix Mendelssohn, albeit one with whom he exchanged compositional ideas. Despite her current marginal position, Schauroth once ranked alongside the virtuosi Liszt and Mendelssohn, and shared connections with Fanny Hensel, Josephine Lang, Clara and Robert Schumann, and others. Through an examination of contemporaneous music criticism and several of her compositions, this presentation develops an image of Schauroth’s style as a pianist and composer, with an emphasis on the role of improvisation and the improvisatory in her pianism.
