Malcolm Farr Posted March 9, 2005 Share Posted March 9, 2005 Reading Robert Ampt's book on the Sydney Town Hall organ, I noticed a section - only half a page - about the 1938 tour of Australia by the young French organist, Renee Nizan. I recall my father, many long years ago, talking about her with awe, although I cannot now recall if he heard her then in Sydney (where he would have been at that time) or earlier in England or Europe. He thought she was absolutely the "ant's pants", "bee's knees", and all those wonderful things rolled into one. Mr Ampt refers to a book or publication, which I currently have no way of accessing, namely Un Ete Precoce: Rene Nizan (1913-1945) by Etienne Delahaye, Toulouse: Orgues Meridionales, 1999. I have looked on the Internet for any information about Mlle Nizan, but haven't been able to find anything. (This is very surprising, as I thought the Internet had information on everything good, bad or indifferent, and that it could (anut td would) be located whether or not one wanted to find ...) Has anyone out there heard of Mlle Nizan? Have any information about her? Regards Malcolm F Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
