Michal Augusta Hambourg (1919-2004) was an English pianist and teacher. Michal's father (and her first teacher) was the pianist Mark Hambourg (1879-1960). Mark's father was the piano pedagogue Mikhail Hambourg (1855-1916), a student of Nikolai Rubinstein and Sergey Taneyev.
Michal was the only one of Mark's four daughters to study
music seriously. Her obvious musical aptitude was soon reinforced by lessons with her father, who also supervised her practice and monitored her musical diet
