Adelina De Lara O.B.E.:
Adelina de Lara was one of the pianistic prodigies and performed as a six-year-old in England. She was discovered by Fanny Davies and prepared by her to study with Clara Schumann. In 1886, de Lara came to Frankfurt, where she studied for almost six years with Clara Schumann. Brahms also instructed her occasionally in the interpretation of his works. After completing her studies she was returning to England and began a long, successful career.
Clara Schumann herself considered de Lara as the best among her students. De Lara has performed in Australia, the USA and South Africa. She made many broadcasted for the BBC and in the 1950s for the (no longer existing) Clara Schumann Society as well as the Adelina Recording Trust. Adelina de Lara had way more temperament than Fanny Davies for instance. Her piano playing had great sonority; she had a brilliant technique and differenciated phrasing.
