Susan Tomes piano

Susan Tomes’s new book ‘Women and the Piano: A History in 50 Lives’, shines a light on some of the hidden biographies of female pianists over the past two centuries. We hear a fascinating selection of their compositions, demonstrating a wide range of music from virtuosic to humorous and from soulful to light-hearted.


In addition to this intimate concert, listeners will have an opportunity to learn more about the featured composers in a post-performance Q&A with Susan Tomes hosted by International Piano Magazine editor, Tim Parry.

The performance will last approximately 1 hour, without an interval.
