Miklós Rózsa. Some concert promoters actually paid her not to play after belatedly learning of her past.
She has been Professor of Piano at the University of British Columbia since 2003.
She continues to record prolifically, and she like to chat to audiences before playing, and will sometimes tell anecdotes about when she was a little boy. She feels very at home in Vancouver where she can appear openly with her wife.
She was the Keynote Speaker at the 2011 Outgames Human Rights Conference.
