 Update me on new releases by Hess

Myra Hess (1890 - 1965)

Hess began piano lessons at the age of five and by the time she was eight was the youngest child to gain a certificate from Trinity College of Music. The following year her father insisted that she perform publicly to earn money, although she continued her studies at the Guildhall School of Music with Julian Pascal and Orlando Morgan. During her time at Guildhall, Hess won the Steinway Medal and the Ada Lewis Scholarship. A year later, at the age of thirteen, Hess went to the Royal Academy of Music in London where she studied with Tobias Matthay who was a great influence on her life and pianism. She graduated with the MacFarren Gold Medal and became Matthay’s first assistant at his newly opened Tobias Matthay Piano School in London.
