Mero, Yolanda (1887–1963)

Hungarian pianist who was widely known on American concert stages. Born in Budapest on August 30, 1887; died in New York City on October 17, 1963.

Yoland Mero studied with her father and then with Augusta Rennebaum , who had been a pupil of Franz Liszt. In 1910, she made her first tour of the United States with great success. From that time on, she played mostly in America, and her many recordings reveal a fiery artist with an extremely efficient technique.
