Lucy Anderson (1797-1878) was the most eminent of the English pianists of the early Victorian era. She championed Beethoven's piano concertos and supposedly played them more than any other pianist in England up to 1850. She also had exclusive rights to play Mendelssohn's 2nd piano concerto in England for 6 months in 1837. She was appointed royal pianist by both Queen Adelaide and Queen Victoria. She also taught both Victoria and her children.
