On the programme: a leading lady

We regularly publish facsimiles of programmes of concerts given by Furtwängler as conductor of London's Philharmonia Orchestra.

Here is the programme for 25 October 1951 at the Albert Hall, with Dame Myra Hess, an English pianist. Although in France, for example, her name is less familiar than many of her contemporaries, her memory is still very much alive in the hearts of English music lovers.

Roger Smithson provides us with some details.

  • A great lady of the piano (Dame Myra), like, let’s say Wanda Landowska, in Bach. Thanks for mentioning her, and the program!
