Friedman, Ignacy

▪ Polish pianist
born Feb. 14, 1882, Podgórze, near Kraków, Pol., Austria-Hungary
died Jan. 26, 1948, Sydney, Australia

      Polish pianist noted for his performances of the works of Frédéric Chopin.

      Friedman studied music theory with Hugo Riemann in Leipzig. In Vienna he studied composition with Guido Adler and studied piano with Theodor Leschetizky for four years. After his debut in 1904, he gave more than 2,800 concerts around the world. In 1940 he moved to Sydney. He was a famous interpreter of Chopin, editing the Breitkopf & Härtel annotated edition of his works in 12 volumes. He wrote about 100 piano pieces in the popular salon style; the best-known of these are in a group of Fantasiestücke. He also transcribed for piano some 18th-century orchestral music, but he is remembered mostly for his brilliant concert career.
