Kathleen Bruckshaw piano

JS Bach, Liszt, Mozart and more


  • Kathleen Bruckshaw piano

The second recital in June 1901 by London-born pianist Kathleen Bruckshaw – one of a few she would give during that year before studies with Busoni and a greater focus on her career as a composer made for fewer appearances on the concert stage.

Bruckshaw was a member of the Society of Women Musicians Composer Group; in 1916 the Society gave a royal gala concert for the opening of the Princesses' Theatre in Crayford, where she accompanied a performance of her piece The Munition Workers' Song, written for the occasion, in a programme that also included performances by Albert Sammons and Frederick Bridge.
