Hans Peter Wallfisch (20 October 1924 – 10 November 1993) was a concert pianist and teacher, resident in Britain from 1951.
Wallfisch was born in Breslau, Lower Silesia, in 1924. In 1938 he emigrated to Palestine; he studied at the Jerusalem Conservatoire, and was later a teacher there. In the late 1940s, he studied in Paris with Marguerite Long. In 1948, he won the first prize of the Béla Bartók Competition in Budapest.
He performed in Europe and elsewhere. As well as the classics, he was interested in lesser-known music of different nations; among English composers he was particularly interested in the music of Frank Bridge, and also of Kenneth Leighton, who dedicated compositions to him.
From 1973 until 1991 Wallfisch was professor of piano at the Royal College of Music. In that year he suffered a stroke which affected his ability to play, and ceased performing in public. He died in London in 1993.
