I’ve been getting private emails about the Dilling video since putting that up. Here’s one that I got from Emily Mitchell.
The Mildred Dilling film is fabulous. I didn’t know she was so good. When I was growing up and heard her play live it was well after her prime. She was a beautiful representative of the French School. I’m completely impressed.
Most of us around today who knew Mildred Dilling only knew her in her old age, and that is not representative of what she could really do. Emily heard her play one of those Community Concerts programs. But that was long after her prime. So we all(those of us who knew her) are really blown away at how good she really was.
