Norma Fisher plays Andre Tchaikowsky "The Inventions" Opus 2
This set of eleven Inventions (ten in the published version) are musical cameos, one for each of eleven friends of Andre Tchaikowsky. The Inventions Opus 2 (1961-1962) is one of the most often played compositions by Andre. Played brilliantly by English pianist Norma Fisher, this single posting includes all The Inventions with the following timings:
Norma Fisher was born in London of Russian-Polish parents. Soon recognised as 'a rare musical talent', she was awarded a Junior Exhibition to study with Sidney Harrison at the Guildhall School of Music. At fourteen she was heard by the celebrated Greek pianist Gina Bachauer who became her mentor, introducing her to the distinguished Hungarian teacher Ilona Kabos, with whom she subsequently studied. A period was also spent in Paris studying French music with Jacques Fevrier.
Norma Fisher is known for her versatility as a performer, receiving international acclaim as one of Britain's leading pianists. This versatility extends to chamber music, which she plays with leading musicians throughout the world.
Her reputation as a teacher is widely established and many of her prize-winning students are well known on the international concert circuit. In addition to her working as a professor at the Royal College of Music, Norma also teaches at the Royal Northern College of Music and is invited to give master classes throughout the world. She is also much in demand as an adjudicator and is regularly invited on the Jury of many major international piano competitions.
