Biography

Henry Handel Richardson was a leading Australian writer from the early twentieth century and author of The Getting of Wisdom and The Fortunes of Richard Mahony. Born Ethel Florence Lindsay Richardson in Melbourne, music was always important to her. She trained as a musician at the Leipzig Conservatorium in Germany in 1888. She was a highly talented performer and composed music throughout her life. However, Richardson was an intensely private person, avoiding public performances and concealing her love of composing from all but her immediate family and a few friends. Only one of her songs was published during her lifetime, and until now her talents as a composer have gone largely unrecognised.
