“Karl Halle was born in Hagen, Germany on 11 April, 1819. Having studied music in Germany, Halle went to Paris in 1836. In his 12 years there, he studied and conversed with such musical luminaries as Luigi Cherubini, Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt, and was friends with the writers, Alfred de Musset and George Sand. He left Paris in 1848 after a revolution in the city, settling with his family in London.
After coming to England, he changed his name to Charles Hallé, adding the accent to the e of his name to stop people calling him Hall.”
