Sophie Humler (b1842), German, Violinist
"Born at Saulgan, a small town near Stuttgart, in 1842, she began the study of the violin under her father in her seventh year. Her progress was rapid; she was sent to the Munich Conservatory, then to Paris where she became a pupil of Delphin Alard. After two years of study under the famous artist, she received the second prize at the Conservatoire in 1857, a very high honor in view of the fact that the first prize went to no other than Pablo Sarasate, who was to become world famed as the greatest violinist of Spain. Miss Humler met brilliant success as a soloist, touring widely; she made her London debut at the age of sixteen, in June of 1858. A large portrait and complimentary notice appeared in The Illustrated London News in the issue of July 31, 1858." (Ernest N. Doring, Violins & Violinists, October-November, 1947)
