2017-11-14 13:47 q.m. 14 year old pianist Nancy Weir playing the piano at Palings, New South Wales, 27 February 1930 (Version)
I haven't yet managed to find this pic of Nancy Weir in the digitised newspapers...Weir was in Sydney in late February and early March 1930 giving a series of recitals...so the date and location currently indicated in the NLA's caption might well be correct...<br/><br/>Weir left for Germany in late March 1930, where she studied for several years with legendary earlier 20th century pianists Edwin Fischer and Artur Schnabel...she later moved to London and studied with Harold Craxton...<br/><br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/1...
