Personalities | Wanda Landowska | Modern Era | Classical

Polish harpsichordist

Landowska studied the piano, but soon took up the then-unfashionable cause of playing the music of J. S. Bach and his contemporaries on the harpsichord. She founded a school of early music near Paris. She was influential through her writings and recordings, which show her vigour and rhythmic strength. Falla and Poulenc wrote concertos for her.
