Branka Musulin (1917-1975), Croatian pianist, studied piano under the guidance of Svetislav Stančić already since the age of eight in her native city of Zagreb, Croatia. After her studies at the Academy of Music of the University of Zagreb, that she completed in 1936 (i.e., at the age of 19), Branka Musulin continued her studies in Paris with Alfred Cortot and Yvonne Lefebure, and then in Rome with Max von Pauer in Germany and Alfredo Casella.

She played under the baton of Hans Mueller-Kray, Willem Mengelberg, Hermann Abendroth, Franz Konwitschny, Karl Boehm, Georg Solti and Sergiu Celibidache. She had numerous pianist concerts throughout Europe, especially in her native Croatia and in Germany, as well as in Japan. Since 1958, she lectured at the Hochschule fuer Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt am Main.
