Musical Ladies

The composer of this selection was fortunate enough to establish a name for herself as a concert pianist long before she one of history’s great composers.

The composer of this selection was fortunate enough to establish a name for herself as a concert pianist long before she met the love of her life, one of history’s great composers. Even as a young woman, she was already giving recitals to sold-out audiences and composing her own works. Needless to say, her fame only grew in leaps in bounds after she married her famous composer husband. They were crazy about each other, and she became a prominent interpreter of her husband’s works in addition to composing her own collection of great compositions. Her musical style combines the innovative techniques of both her husband and another close musical admirer.
