Anna Goldsworthy

One of the new writers I’ve come across from The Monthly whose work I’ve really come to enjoy is Anna Goldsworthy, a classical pianist who writes about her experiences in the performing arts. This is a world far removed from my own but one I’ve always appreciated as a keen fan of all kinds of music. She has a website here and you can find links to her superb pieces from The Monthly and other publications in the Writings section of her website. Her three pieces from The Monthly are here, here and here.

    Slightly off topic but Anna’s site illustrates the values of the ABC – in particular radio national and classic FM.

    Long live aunty!

    Jason, you might enjoy this. The book is terrific (and includes an account of growing up a high-achieving ob-com girly maths nerd). Anna is not only superlatively gifted but also a lovely person.

    Very impressed. It would be a difficult thing to earn a living as a classical pianist (and writer) in Australia.

    I remember deciding in ~year 12 against a career in music due to the small job market (except for music teachers) and relatively low pay. How would life have been had I decided to go for a career in music? It’s hard to know.

    She examined me towards the end of last year. Very serene and graceful in person.
