(1823 - 1874)

Thomas Dyke Ackland Tellefsen left Norway in 1842 to study music in Paris. His first meeting with Chopin was in November 1844. Following this, he regularly took lessons with Chopin until May 1847. Chopin engaged him as a copyist and wanted Tellefsen to bring to fruition his plans for a piano school, a work that Tellefsen unfortunately did not complete. After Chopin’s death Tellefsen took on a number of his pupils and made a name for himself as a teacher. From the 1850s he reached a position as one of the piano virtuosi of the time and toured successfully in France, England, and Scandinavia. While growing up, Tellefsen had acquired comprehensive knowledge of Baroque music and the Bach tradition, knowledge that he used extensively during his years in Paris in the 1850s, when he was one of the musicians involved in the revival of earlier musical traditions.
