Schiller, Madeline


Gifted pianist, who was born In London, the daughter of an English citizen of German descent. She was a pupil of Benjamin R. Isaacs and for a short time of Benedict and Halle, but really formed her own style and was mainly self-taught. After a short time spent in study with Moscheles at Leipsic Miss Schiller made her debut at a Gewandhaus concert, playing Mendelssohn's G minor concerto. She then toured Australia, and upon her return was married to Marcus Elmer Bennett, of Boston. She resided in Boston for several years and traveled throughout the United States, giving concerts; and, following a second tour of Australia, she traveled through Europe. She has won the admiration of musicians by her spirited and refined interpretation of classic and modern piano-music. Mrs. Bennett at present resides in New York.
