Rainer Hersch's Proms in the Pub


Norma Fisher

Season 1, Ep. 3

The Proms was different back then. Norma Fisher had a sparkling solo career in the 60s and 70s including a number of Proms appearances, and is now one of Britain’s most respected piano teachers . Hear about her BBC audition to an, apparently, completely empty Albert Hall; not making eye contact with Sir Malcolm Sargent, and overcoming the horrors of a memory lapse whilst playing Rachmaninov live at the Proms. Plus: review of Cynthia Erivo and our usual musical treat from Harry the Piano.
