Moritz (Maurice) Moszkowski (23 August 1854, Breslau, Prussia (now Wroclaw, Poland) - 4 March 1925, Paris, France) was a German Jewish composer, pianist, and teacher of Polish descent. Ignacy Paderewski said, "After Chopin, Moszkowski best understands how to write for the piano". Although little known today, Moszkowski was well-respected and popular during the late nineteenth century.
He studied music in Breslau, Dresden and Berlin, under Theodor Kullak and others. He was a teacher in Berlin for many years. His pupils included Frank Damrosch, Józef Hofmann, Joaquin Nin, Vlado Perlemuter, Ernest Schelling and Joaquin Turina. After a successful career as a concert pianist and conductor, he settled in Paris in 1897, where his students included Thomas Beecham and, informally, Gaby Casadesus. In 1899 the Berlin Academy elected him a member. He died in Paris, in obscurity and poverty. Text source : Wikipedia (Hide extended text) ... (Read all)
