Abstract: Until her death in 1986, Lili Kraus was one of the greatest pianists and teachers of the twentieth century. She was widely regarded as the foremost living interpreter of the piano music of Haydn, Schubert, and especially Mozart, the composer with whose name she became inextricably linked. Mme. Kraus, as she was known throughout the world, was a fabulous musician, an actress with a charismatic stage-presence, a linguist who conversed easily in seven languages, an athlete, and a human being who loved all life with a passion. She was, in short, one of the truly fascinating personalities, and her life story is the stuff movies are made of.
