[Interview with Moura Lympany, pianist]
Find out more about this item:
5. Moura Lympany talks about being a woman piano player with Jessica Weddell.
She comments that only recently have people started to make a distinction between male and female pianists, including having 'a woman pianist' on the bill at shows. She does not see why there should be any differentiation. She mentions Gina Bachauer, who in her opinion plays with the strength of five men, and that men can also play sensitively.
She talks about how she relaxes - she prefers to totally get away from music by getting out on the water, reading, gardening, going to the theatre.
Recorded in September 1966.
