I thought this would be interesting to share with other pianists. You can view a larger version here

My piano teacher Dr. Campbell commissioned this chart from me a couple months ago and during our summer recital last week she revealed the artwork to the students who each received their own print of the art. I personalized each print in matching calligraphy with the students name under Bethany’s so they can trace their own lineage up to Beethoven's.

My teacher did all the legwork, she kept histories of her teachers and teacher's teachers and then expanded with her own research. Some were 'dead end branches' (Schumann, Mendelssohn) but we included them because she thought they're interesting. Some we added because they're her favorite composers and she wanted them in there somehow (Rachmaninov, Prokofiev). She actually had more connections but we had to trim down some branches due to size and balance issues.

It was fun to make and hope you enjoy!

This is so lovely! Btw, you could even go a couple of generations further from Beethoven's teacher, Neefe, up to Bach himself!

Very nice!

I did something similar and it's very similar (Pressler was also my teacher's teacher back in the 60's). Did you do the drawings yourself?

Eric399: Thank you! Oh I wish we could have expanded to Bach, but we were running out of space and wanted it to look balanced still. So we decided to start it at Beethoven.

D959: Thank you! What a small world. And yes I'm an illustrator and created the whole thing.

zomzi: Thank you!

Excellent work! I really like this chart.

I should mention, however, that you missed one other connection: Isadore Philipp (my teacher's teacher) was also a student of Theodore Ritter, who was a student of Liszt.
