Emma Boynet (1891-1974)
Emma Boynet was a prized pupil and life long associate of Isidor Philipp. She was awarded a first prize in piano at the Paris Conservatory. She was a favorite pianist of Serge Koussevitzky with whom she often performed at Boston Symphony concerts. And she is known for her beautiful playing of the French piano repertoire, particularly the music of Gabriel Fauré whom she knew well. I love her playing and will be on the lookout for more examples of it. Emma Boynet's Bach must have been delightful. To hear her play more of his music with that gorgeous tone and perfect touch would bring me no end of pleasure.
