Kathleen Dale (née Richards) (1896-1984)
pianist Eunmi Ko
Kathleen Dale (née Richards) was a British composer and musicologist. She is probably most well known for her 1970 biography of Johannes Brahms, but she also wrote a number of stunning chamber compositions, often featuring piano, violins, and/or voice, none of which have previously been recorded. In 1921 she married composer and teacher Benjamin Dale, but outlived him by some 41 years. She is also recognized for her pioneering research into composer Dame Ethel Smyth. This is likely the first recording of one of her compositions.
