Newcomb, Ethel (1875–1959)

American pianist. Born in Whitney Point, New York, in 1875; died in Whitney Point, New York, on July 3, 1959.

Ethel Newcomb studied in Vienna with Theodor Leschetizky from 1895 to 1903. While there, she performed concertos with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. Leschetizky kept her on as his assistant from 1904 through 1908, and eventually she wrote an interesting memoir about her teacher and colleague. At her 1904 London debut, she performed concertos by Schumann, Chopin, and Saint-Saëns under the baton of Richard Strauss. The bulk of her career took place in the United States.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
