Austrian-American concert pianist.

Fannie Bloomfield (nee Fannie Blumenfeld) Zeisler, whose concert career spanned forty years, was born near Vienna in 1863. Settling in Chicago with her family in 1863, she began touring as a concert pianist in 1883 and in 1885 married Sigmund Zeisler, a politically active lawyer who would serve as associate defense counsel for the Chicago anarchists following the Haymarket riot of 1886. Besides years of touring both in the United States and Europe, Bloomfield-Zeisler maintained a commitment to teaching and to various professional associations. Although she referred to herself as Fannie Zeisler, she was also known as Fannie Bloomfield-Zeisler.
