Edith Picht-Axenfeld

by the way; do you, or anybody else, know about films or maybe recordings about Edith Picht Axenfeld regarding her piano-playing?

I had the great pleasure to listen to her personally in 1988 at Münster (D) where she gave a beneficial-concert for a polish-german students-exchange-organisation.

She played Chopin, Schönberg and Mozart (Adagio h-moll KV 540) on the Bösendorfer Grand.

I will never forget her sitting at the Bösendorfer shaken slightly probably by Parkinson but when she touched the keys or some pedal no shaking was visible any longer. I guess regretfully this event remained undocumented.

Best regards
