Charles Kensington Salaman (1814-1901) British Jewish Composer, Pianist and Writer.
Salaman, born at 11 Charing Cross Road, London was elected a candidate for admission to Royal Academy of Music aged 10. He played duets with Franz List and was acquainted with Schuman, Czerny, Thalberg & Motzart’s widow & Son. He had a special interest in Devotional Music font the Synagogue.

He was a founder member of the Concerti da Camera chamber music organisation. Received the rare distinction of honorary membership in the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and the Roman Philharmonic Society, after conducting Beethoven’s Symphony No 2 at a concert at the Ruspoli Palace, Rome.
Salaman, along with Michael Faraday and Sir Charles Wheatstone, was specially invited to lecture in private to Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, and their children. In 1858 he founded the Musical Society of London.

He was an early member of the Maccabaeans, a society for professional and cultured Jews to socialize and discuss. He wrote the book Jews As They Are in 1882, to dispel common myths about Judaism & publicly denounced Richard Wagner for his anti-Semitic views.
