Franz Xaver Scharwenka

Author Code: OFXS

Born: Jan. 6, 1850 - Szamotuly, Poland

Died: Dec. 8, 1924 - Berlin, Germany

Scharwenka's family moved to Berlin when he was 15 and he, together with his brother Philip, was soon after enrolled as a student at the Academie der Tonkunst. A naturally gifted pianist, he made his debut when he was 19. He taught at the Academie for four years before entering the military for a year in 1873. Thereafter, he toured as a concert pianist until 1881 when he founded a music school in Berlin. For the next decade he composed and taught in addition to his very successful concert tours. In 1891, he travelled to America and opened a branch of his school in New York City. In 1898, he returned to Berlin after his school merged with the Klindworth Conservatory. In 1907, he published Methodik des Klavierspiels, which became a popular teaching tool. He opened another music school in 1914 which included a piano teacher's seminary. Scharwenka's compositions include an opera, a symphony, numerous piano pieces, chamber music and four piano concertos. Ignored for many years, his work has recently experienced a revival.
