Marie Hall

Marie Hall

Marie Pauline Hall (8 April 1884 – 11 November 1956) was an English violinist.

Hall was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. She received her first lessons from her father, who was a harpist in the orchestra of the Carl Rosa Opera Company. She also studied with a local teacher, Hildegarde Werner.

She possessed a technique that she believed was due to Ševčík’s teaching. While she appeared to be not very strong physically, Hall proved herself strong enough to engage upon long tours and perform exacting programs without fatigue.

Ralph Vaughan Williams completed The Lark Ascending with Hall’s assistance, and dedicated it to her. She gave the first public performances, that for violin and piano at a concert of the Avonmouth and Shirehampton Choral Society on 15 December 1920, and that for violin and orchestra at the Queen’s Hall with the British Symphony Orchestra under Adrian Boult on 14 June 1921.
