Hyde, Miriam Beatrice
Miriam Beatrice Hyde was an Australian pianist and composer. Her mother was a pianist by trade and her first tutor. She received a scholarship to attend the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide at the age of 12, where she learned piano with William Silver and graduated in 1931 from MusBac. An Elder Scholarship qualified her to study at the RCM (1932-5) in London, where her professors were Howard Hadley (piano) and R.O. Morris and Gordon Jacob (composition), where she received three awards in composition and both ARCM (composition and piano) and LRAMM (composition and piano) (piano). She composed two piano concertos while practicing, which she conducted with the LPO and the LSO. In 1936, the centennial year of South Australia, during which the Adelaide Overture (conducted by Sargent) and incidental music for the South Australia Centenary Pageant,' Heritage,' were played, Hyde returned to Adelaide. Miriam Beatrice Hyde was an Australian pianist and composer. Hyde's range of authors is a diverse one, varying from the well-known to the unknown, a fan of the English language and its poetry and a creator of hundreds of poems herself, the composer choosing to set terms that have sense and passion for her rather than what would cater to the consumer industry.
