Eileen Joyce

Eileen Joyce - The Complete Studio Recordings (10CD)

‘In every way the most transcendentally gifted young piano student I have heard in the last 25 years’ was Percy Grainger’s pronouncement of the young Eileen Joyce (1908–1991) when he first heard her play in 1926.

The set’s editorial content includes a personal memoir of the pianist from Bryce Morrison; a thoroughly researched and documented history of her early years by David Tunley; an account of her career by another Australian academic and historian of performing arts, Victoria Rogers; and the story of her career as a recording artist, by Cyrus Meher-Homji.

"Pianophiles will be slavering at the prospect of having access to all this great artist’s recordings..." Jeremy Nicholas Gramophone
