Great Pianists of the Golden Age
by Marguerite and Terry Broadbent
With a Foreword by Vladimir Ashkenazy
In a 15-year study for the North West Player Piano Association the authors investigated the lives of musicians (mainly pianists) who were professionally active during the period 1900-1950. This book celebrates, in the form of carefully-researched biographies, the lives of 25 of the greatest pianists of that era. The biographies are presented in what is hoped is an interesting and readable form, with a brief appraisal of the subjects' special qualities as pianists, and there are many anecdotes.
The pianists whose lives are recalled are:
