Abstract:

A piano performer, music educator, and writer, Walter Robert (1908-1999) performed many solo and accompaniment recitals, including concerts in New York, Vienna, Italy, Austria, and Taiwan. In addition, Robert taught music at North Texas University and Indiana University and was a professor for brief periods of time at many places worldwide. Robert also wrote articles on various composers and music styles and was a lifelong scholar in classical languages.
