  • Evelyn Suart piano* *Wigmore Hall Debut

Born in India in 1881, Evelyn Suart studied in Brussels, Paris and in Vienna with Theodor Leschetizky. By the time of her appearance at this early Wigmore Hall concert she had already given the British première of the original version of Rachmaninov's first Piano Concerto, under Sir Henry Wood, at a Promenade Concert in 1900.

Although the programmes of her first solo concerts consist of fairly traditional repertoire, Suart was soon to become known as a proponent of contemporary French and British music, in particular the works of Debussy and Ravel and the English composer Cyril Scott.
