On 24 April, we were delighted to welcome back renowned pianist Edith Fischer to give a masterclass.
Born in Santiago de Chile, Ms Fischer gave her first recital at the age of 11 and later studied with Claudio Arrau (as did our own Ruth Nye.) In 1989, she and her husband founded the festival Semaine Internationale de piano de Blonay-St.-Légier and Cours international in Switzerland.
Her wonderfully warm approach was most inspiring, and Ms Fischer remarked that she was extremely impressed by our students.
Richard, Rebecca, Claire, Katie, Gorka, Viviana, Alasdair, Duru and the Brahms Trio all had the opportunity to spend time with her.
We look forward to welcoming her again whenever her busy schedule will allow.
