Would like to receive information about MARIA LINKS: Austrian violinist (not to be confused with Maria Lidka). The following was provided by my Mother:
Maria Links fled from Austria to Bradfield / Buckleberry area, Berkshire in 1940 with her two children. Her husband, believed to have been in the cosmetics business, disappeared. (The family was Jewish).
She was a very talented violinist and, whilst in Berkshire, gave many chamber concerts. After the war, Mrs. Links emigrated to the U.S.A. and joined a string quartet, which, as I understand it, became well-established. However, the quartet's name was not remembered.
No further data is available to me. Any material will be received most gratefully.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
