Ferdynand von Hiller
Ferdinand von Hiller (1811–1885) – German composer, pianist and teacher. He completed his studies in Weimar, before moving to Paris around the turn of the 1830s, where he made the acquaintance of other artists who had settled there, including Cherubini, Meyerbeer, Rossini, Halévy, Berlioz, Liszt, Kalkbrenner and Chopin. Hiller performed in 1832 in the concert that marked Fryderyk Chopin’s Parisian debut, and in 1833 he joined the Polish composer and Ferenc Liszt in J. S. Bach’s Concerto for three pianos; a joint concert by Hiller, Tellefsen and Alkan in 1853 at the Salle Pleyel may have been a replication of that concert from twenty years earlier.
