By David Tunley, Victoria Rogers and Cyrus Meher-Homji
Born in Tasmania, the Australian pianist Eileen Joyce was destined for the great concert halls of the world and a career that established her at the international pinnacle of twentieth-century pianism. In-depth essays in this book examine her studies in Germany, her appearances as a glamorous concert artist, her starring roles on film, her fascination with the harpsichord and embrace of early music, and her many acclaimed recordings. With listings of Joyce’s concerto and solo recital repertoire and the most complete discography to date, this is an informative new account of the extraordinary career of a consummate artist.
