The story of Wanda Landowska is the fascinating story of a determined woman who desperately wanted to be famous as a teenager in Warsaw. I was so impressed and inspired by her that I did my Ph.D. dissertation on her and her work. I was extremely fortunate to get to go to Paris for six weeks in the summer of 1987 to research Landowsk’a career. There at the Bibliotheque Nationale I found everything I needed for my dissertation, including concert reviews in at least 8 or 9 different languages.
Since that time, my dissertation has been turned into an award-winning documentary entitled “UncommonVisionary.” You can purchase this film here. You can also buy many of her CD’s that have been re-mastered from the original RCA 78 LP’s. Check out the Landowska CD’s here. Landowksa was one of the great Romantic artists of te 20th century. I hope you’ll get to know her work!
