The Forgotten History of the Exceptional Jewish Women Pianists and Their Legacy, from the 18th-century On, Presented by Diane Cole.

From 18th through 20th centuries, these stellar but today lesser known musicians from across Europe and USA include: Sara Levy and her great niece Fanny Mendelssohn, Maria Szymanowska (whose musical network included just about everybody), Fannie Bloomfield Zeisler (who pretended to be an “ordinary” American housewife while wowing audiences around the world, Holocaust survivor Clara Haskill and others. Oh yes–and as a “prelude” to my interest in the subject will be a brief precis of my lifelong quest to become a better pianist. Research comes from a wonderful recently published book, Woman and the Piano: A History in Fifty Lives by Scottish pianist Susan Tomes.
