Filtsch was born on the 28th May 1830 in Mühlbach (Sebeş) in present-day Romania. His father, a Lutheran church pastor in Mühlbach, was his first piano teacher. Carl and his brother Joseph, also a child pianist, arrived in Paris on 29th November 1841, and immediately sought out Chopin to be Carl's teacher.

Though Chopin almost never taught children, and rarely gave a student more than one lesson per week, he agreed to teach Carl, and gave him three lessons a week. Considered Chopin's most talented pupil, Filtsch received high praise from Franz Liszt, Friedrich Wieck, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Ignaz Moscheles, the music critic Ludwig Rellstab, and fellow child prodigy, Anton Rubinstein. Filtsch began touring Europe on concert tours at the age of thirteen. After triumphant concerts in Paris, London, and Vienna, his promising career was cut short by an early death on the 11th May 1845 in Venice from tuberculosis. Read more on Last.fm.
