Liebling, Bruch, Chopin and more


  • Carl Flesch violin
  • Georg Liebling piano
  • George H. Clutsam accompanist

The second of two concerts given in November 1901 by the influential Hungarian teacher and violinist Carl Flesch and the German court pianist and composer Georg Liebling. As in their first concert, Liebling performed a selection of his own works, including giving the première of The Mill in the Woods Op. 24 and playing for the London première of his Violin Sonata in C major Op. 28.

The accompanist for both concerts was the Australian pianist and composer George H. Clutsam. Born in 1866 and receiving little musical training, during the late nineteenth century he built a reputation as an accompanist playing for, among others, Nellie Melba, and by 1901 was also beginning to be known as a writer of art song.
