Accepted into the Peabody Conservatory studio of Mieczyslaw Munz at age thirteen, pianist Ann Schein's life changed when, in 1960, Arthur Rubinstein heard her performance of Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto, and invited her to study with him while he was on vacation in Paris and Lucerne. After successes in New York and Europe, Schein put her career on hold to raise two children with her husband Earl Arlyss (of the Juilliard String Quartet). Schein's 1980 all-Chopin recitals at Alice Tully Hall drew sold-out audiences and rave reviews, resulting in more recitals, teaching positions at Peabody and the Aspen Summer Festival, and a world-wide tour with soprano Jessye Norman.
Her April 30, 2014 National Gallery of Art recital was the culmination of the NGA's "Five Lives in Music" salute to women performers, composers and impresarios based on Cecelia Hopkins Porter's book of the same name. This recital was recorded by the NGA's John Conway.
