Impressive achievement: Elu posing with her MBR record. Ironically, Elu started learning the violin first.

Lloyd gives a potted genealogy of piano playing female literary and historical figures alongside these personal stories. She explores "the ivory ceiling"and oppressive ideas of gender and identity that hinder the liberating potential of this artistic form for women. For example, in Jane Austen's novels heroines are deemed "morally shady" for playing the piano too well, and are expected to perform dutifully when asked, but to never desire it themselves. Outside fiction, virtuosic concert pianist Clara Schumann's extraordinary talent for improvisation disappeared from public view when she agreed with everyone else that "women must not desire to compose".
Schumann's shift from performing her own compositions to those of older European men set the standard of the classical music recital still entrenched today.

It is rare for a personal story about classical music to offer socio-political context and cultural critique. Lloyd's juxtaposition of several different narrative strands sometimes affects pace the reader wants to skip ahead and the strands could have illuminated each other more effectively and built the whole. Also, a personal narrative that turns, partly, on finding a man, felt at odds with the overall themes, and the criticism of Austen's work for doing the same thing, although Lloyd rightly points out the underlying counter themes.
Her writing is assured, her sentences short and shapely. If her analysis falls just shy of being fully realised perhaps it reflects the relatively untrammelled path it takes. This journey from self-censoring schoolgirl to something very different feels victorious, and the telling of these neglected and important cultural truths is a brave achievement.
The Piano Girl, Part 2
She recently came second at the International Ceser Frank Piano Competition, as well as at the International Ischia Piano Competition, in which 80 people from 26 countries competed. She wants to own an acoustic piano in order to continue practicing at home. It also makes me very proud and motivates me. When I sit at the piano after greeting the audience, it is just the piano and I.

When it was my turn, I got a bit excited but when I started playing, my excitement disappeared. Then I learned that I represented my country very well and achieved a degree in the competition. This is my fourth award.
