American Violinist Maud Powell Born On This Day [ON-THIS-DAY]

American violin virtuoso Maud Powell was born on this day in 1868 - 148 years ago

American violin virtuoso Maud Powell was born on this day in 1868 - 148 years ago.

A student of Henry Schradieck, Charles Dancla and Joseph Joachim, she is remembered as one of the first female American violinists in history to achieve international rank.

She gave the American premiere performance of 15 violin concertos – including Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Saint-Saens No. 3, Lalo ‘Symphony Espagnole’, Sibelius and Bruch No. 1 in G Minor.

She is also credited with having revived a number of neglected works of the 18th Century – including Mozart’s ‘Sinfonia Concertante’.
