Belleville-Oury, Emilie


Accomplished German pianist. Born in Munich. Studied with Czerny and afterward made many and successful concert tours, on one of which she married the violinist Oury in London and lived there for some time, some biographers say for years. She returned eventually to Munich, however, and died there. Schumann has compared her work very favorably with that of Clara Schumann. She composed some piano music and made many transcriptions and arrangements.
