English singer and composer Elisabetha Nina Mary Frederica "Liza" Lehmann (1862-1918) was born in London to German painter Rudolf Lehmann and his Italian wife. Among her teachers was the great Jenny Lind. A combination of marriage to composer, author, and artist Herbert Bedford and what seems to have been a case of Bell's Palsy ended her singing career but allowed her to focus fully on composition.
