Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all having a great week. Today is the 50th anniversary of Marina Mdivani's Carnegie Hall debut. A pupil of Gilels and winner of the 1961 Long-Thibaud competition, Mdivani was the first female Soviet artist to tour North America after Kogan, Oistrakh, Gilels and Richter.

Her Carnegie Hall debut was originally scheduled for November 22, 1963, the evening of the Kennedy assassination. Here, she talks about her studies with Gilels, the difficulties of living in the Soviet Union, and being only one of a handful at Gould's Moscow debut in 1957.

As always, many thanks for reading smile

Here's a recording of Mdivani performing Liszt's Mazeppa, as mentioned in the article.

I can see why Gilels was so impressed with her Mazeppa - it's electrifying!
