Fanny Davies was a British pianist who was particularly admired in Beethoven, Schumann, Brahms, and the early schools, but was also a very early London performer of the works of Debussy and Scriabin. In England, she was regarded as the ‘successor’ of Arabella Goddard, though her style and technique differed from Goddard’s considerably.
