who gives a masterclass on period movement and the language of the fan! Recorded at St James Theatre on 10 Sept 2015.
“I was in Vienna visiting the Mozart House, which is now a museum and on the exit wall there was a Mozart family portrait. In it she’s already in her twenties, she has this humongous hairdo and that drew my attention to this little tiny picture and I found out there was a sister, performing together because they were actually seated at a keyboard, their hands intertwined and when I started researching I couldn’t believe how important the story is.”
