Grieg’s influence on Hanka Schjelderup Petzold
Hanka Schjelderup Petzold (1862–1937) was the sister of Gerhard Schjelderup, a Norwegian composer and music critic. She arrived in Japan in 1909 to teach the piano and singing at the Tokyo Music School and lived there until her death. Nurturing prominent Japanese musicians, she performed at concerts and received good reviews. Although she played an important role in the sphere of music in Japan, her achievements have not been researched extensively.
