Lamond was born in Glasgow, Scotland.

: 684

In 1882, Lamond entered the Raff-Konservatorium in Frankfurt. He studied with Hugo Heermann (violin), Anton Urspruch (composition), Max Schwarz (piano), and Franz Liszt in piano, followed by piano with Hans von Bülow, Clara Schumann, and Franz Liszt.

Lamond made his Berlin debut on November 17th.

In 1885 and 1886, Lamond worked with Franz Liszt at Weimar and Rome, as well as in London in 1886. In 1886, Lamond encountered Johannes Brahms, who aided him in his own works. Lamond was also acquainted with Anton Rubinstein in Germany, where he appeared and performed many times, and then in Russia in the 1890s.

Later life

Irene Triesch (1877–1964), an Austrian actress, married Lamond in 1904.

Despite his declining form, he continued to perform until the end of his life, and was in Prague in 1938 when the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia. He was forced to leave the majority of his possessions behind, including an unfinished book, before heading for England. When he was stopped at the border at Eger, a friend recalled Lamond's flight. "A Gestapo officer insisted on seeing his passport." You can see it,' But I would not encourage you to take it into your hands,' he said.' "Are you an Aryan?" the cop inquired. 'No, I am a monkey,' Lamond replied, 'I am a monkey!' "Lamond was a virulently outspoken man who would not tolerate nononsense."

Victor Borge, Jan Chiapusso, Gunnar Johansen, Ervin Nyiregyházi, and Carrie Burpee Shaw were among Lamond's pupils. In Stirling, Lamond died at the age of eighty.


Frederic Lamond Career


In addition to becoming one of the early champions of Brahms' piano works, Lamond was considered the primary authority on Beethoven's piano music before Artur Schnabel, and Breitkopf & Härtel published his edition of the piano sonatas.

In 1893 Lamond was invited by Vasily Safonov to Moscow to play Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto in B-flat minor, Op. 23, at the request of the composer. While in Russia, he met Alexander Scriabin, whose Second Sonata, Op. 19, Lamond later played.

In the 1920s and '30s, Lamond recorded many works of Beethoven (including an acoustic recording of the "Emperor" Concerto complete under Eugène Goossens, for HMV) and Liszt, as well as a scattered assortment of smaller works by other composers. While not the greatest of technicians by the time of his recordings — reviews from his youth praise his accuracy and bravura in such taxing works as the Brahms Paganini Variations, Op. 35 — his graceful phrasing and singing tone are quite remarkable.

In 1937 the University of Glasgow awarded Lamond an Honorary Doctor of Laws.
