Finally, after many months, I have time to update this website and share with you the many names and websites of women pianists that I have been told of or discovered in web browsing (particularly within concert series), and you will find them listed below.
New pages published this month include:
A biographical page for Maria Yudina (1899-1970), which includes links to several excellent webpages about her, as well as online reviews of her "Great Pianists of the 20th Century" cd.
and the page I am most excited about: Videos of Women Pianists! I began collecting this information after receiving an email asking about movies that feature a female pianist, to give to a little girl who wants to play the piano. I didn't find any concert artists appearing in old movies but did find several videos of live recitals. What I have listed is largely the result of websearching. If you know of other videos, please email me. One important source that I am looking for are the public television broadcasts of live recitals that are occasionally mentioned in a performers' website. We need to model in as many ways as possible the excellent performance of classical music for our students, and videos are usually a more available medium than the preferred live performances.
I also hope you will take time to read the interesting emails that were sent since March -- April & May and June, July & August, many of whom provided information resulting in the following updates:
