"Annie Fischer, (born July 5, 1914, Budapest, Hung.—died April 10, 1995, Budapest), Hungarian pianist who gained international renown in the 20th century.
"Fischer was a child prodigy. Her debut performance, at age eight, was of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Concerto in C Major. She studied at the Academy of Music in Budapest under Arnold Székely and Ernst von Dohnányi. In 1933 she won first prize in the Liszt piano competition in Budapest....
"Her performing career took her all over the world. In 1955 she was made an honorary professor of the Academy of Music in Budapest. In her later years she performed less regularly, playing mostly outside of Budapest (both in Hungary and abroad). Her blend of temperamental, explosive playing combined with sensitivity was reminiscent of the tradition of the Romantic era. "
