Abstract


Eduard Stolz van "Enon in Südafrika" het tydens die akademiese jaar 1872/1873 by die Koninklike Kerkmusiekinstituut, wat vanaf 1875 deel van die Hochschule für Musik gevorm het, studeer. Vanaf die begin van die Hochschule in 1869 tot in 1914 was daar vyf studente wat in Suid- Afrika gebore is. Florence Gau (Grahamstad, April 1893 tot April 1896) was 'n klavierstudent van Oscar Raif. Die vioolstudent Irene Bell (Queenstown, Oktober 1897 tot Oktober 1900) het by Karl Markees en Joseph Joachim studeer, en die tjello-student Edith Bell (Queenstown, April 1900 tot Oktober 1901), waarskynlik Irene se suster, het Robert Hausmann as onderwyser gehad. Emily (Emilie) Hoesch (Oudtshoorn, April 1903 tot April 1908) was 'n baie suksesvolle sangstudent van Adolph Schulze, en Alma Meyer (Kimberley, Oktober 1912 tot Maart 1914) het by Felix Schmidt sang studeer.
Onder die studente wat nie in Suid-Afrika gebore is nie, maar later 'n bydrae tot die land se kulturele lewe gemaak het, tel die Australiese pianis Elsie Hall (April 1894 tot April 1897) wat by Robert Kahn en Ernst Rudorff studeer het en haar later in Suid-Afrika gevestig het, en Albertha Tideman-Wijers (van Nederland, April 1906 tot Oktober 1909). Sy was 'n student van die beroemde pianis en komponis Dohnányi, en het later drie Afrikaanse gedigte van Elisabeth Eybers getoonset.

During the academic year 1872/1873, Eduard Stolz from "Enon in Südafrika" studied at the Royal Institute for Church Music, which from 1875 formed part of the Hochschule für Musik. From its inception in 1869 until 1914 there were five South African-born students who studied at the Hochschule. Florence Gau (Grahamstown, April 1893 to April 1896) was a piano student of Oscar Raif. The violin student Irene Bell (Queenstown, October 1897 to October 1900) studied with Karl Markees and Joseph Joachim, and the violoncello student Edith Bell (Queenstown, April 1900 to October 1901), probably Irene's sister, had Robert Hausmann as her teacher. Emily (Emilie) Hoesch (Oudtshoorn, April 1903 to April 1908) was a very successful singing student under Adolph Schulze. Another singer was Alma Meyer (Kimberley, October 1912 to March 1914) who studied with Felix Schmidt.


Among students who were not born in South Africa but later made contributions to its cultural life are the Australian pianist Elsie Hall (April 1894 to April 1897) who studied under Robert Kahn and Ernst Rudorff and later settled in South Africa, and Albertha Tideman- Wijers (from the Netherlands, April 1906 to October 1909) who was a student of the famous pianist and composer Dohnányi. She later set three Afrikaans poems by Elisabeth Eybers to music.
