Biographies

Alice Charbonnet-Kellermann was a concert pianist and popular teacher who worked in Sydney and later in Melbourne. Her father was a French judge, and her formative years were spent in a variety of countries, beginning with the United States. She took musical instruction from prominent teachers in Paris before moving with her family to New Caledonia, where her father was sent to become Chief Justice. After his sudden death she returned to Paris, and gained admission to the Paris Conservatoire in 1876 to study piano and harmony. Charbonnet-Kellermann arrived in Australia in 1878 to make a professional tour, giving her first concert in Sydney to much acclaim. She later worked in Melbourne at Allans' Music Warehouse as a demonstration pianist. She married Sydney violinist Frederick Kellerman in 1882, with whom she had four children. Together they established a music school in Philip Street, Sydney, and Charbonnet-Kellerman became a distinguished figure on Sydney's concert scene. She gave many afternoon recitals at gatherings at Philip Street and at her home in Potts Point, and appeared in many larger concerts. After moving to Melbourne in 1901 without her husband, Charbonnet-Kellermann became a music teacher at Simpson's School, Mentone, where she commanded a high fees because of her experience and the high results she obtained with students. In 1907 she retired to Paris, but continued giving concerts. Charbonnet-Kellermann's compositions include numerous salon works for the piano, a setting of the Ave Maria for voice, piano, and violin obligato, and transcriptions of songs for the piano. Her Gypsy Gavotte appeared in the Australian Musical Album of 1894. Charbonnet-Kellermann's eldest daughter, Annette Kellermann, became famous as a champion swimmer and diver, and later a vaudeville and film star.
