Hmm, she's kinda cute. Not sure how a Fleur de Lis has anything to do with Robert Schumann, though. The body art is alright.

Well, I guess we've all come to the conclusion, then, that there are no attractive MALE pianists out there...besides me...

this thread's fun...yeah i can see the thumbs up for a young agerich...emma watson? really? i mean she's not attractive but for me at least the appeal's not there, maybe if she put on a wee bit  more weight, she looks a little waify and although sort of pretty, more in a plain sort of way.

i'm  not particular gunning for the lovley asian ladies, there just happens to be a lot pretty asian pianists performing out and about now so by numbers they're getting more honerable mentions at the moment

the claremont trio, i know one of them is piano, can't remember at the moment, might be the middle one, but they're all pretty and the other two can probably play too (maybe secondary instrument piano?)

Puh-lease! She is clearly "photoshopped" and I would like to point out you probably consider her "attractive" only because of the blatant side boob exposing.

According to Wikipedia (we can take it as semi-official, as the entry was probably made by the pianist herself), she is 51 years old.

Why not Myleene Klass.  She sings as well as plays the piano and is quite well-known in the UK.

Why has no one mentioned Angela Hewitt? :-\  While she is not in her twenties, I'm sure there are enough members on Pianostreet of a more mature age that would find a lady of that age attractive.  Besides, as is obvious from Hewitt's publicity pictures and CD covers, she is someone who exhumes confidence in her appearance.

we might both have to check our sources if you are quoting definite evidence then i stand corrected however  just throwing out there 'shopped' is asinine. to the best of my knowledge that was an official press release photo of her years ago, she is very pretty even now at her current age.  many times pianists will have their PR people keep older photos of them in their better years for various reasons.  i made no statement that it was a 'now' of her, just that she is a beautiful lady. all the other official pictures of her point to this being authentic again if you had seen otherwise and proof of a fake that i didn't come across, then my apologies but it lines up with the other album images and others of her

as for 'blatant' side boob i'm not sure what you're getting at. last i checked biology worked pretty well and straight normal guys  found everything from a pretty face to boobs to butt all nice to look at. i'm not sure how being a functional male is something to apologize for.

no i don't think it has to be a 'classical ' pianist per se, take the debated shot of above where someone was crying shopped....she's a brazilian jazz composer singer and pianist and steinway artist (there are many in the list, i.e. Harry Connick Jr is a steinway artist but more of a jazz musician)

Well, that explains why she is so attractive. I have never seen a female classical pianist that has been that attractive, no matter what the age is. For being 51 years old, wow, that's impressive.

Yes, she's nice.  Though in some of her photographs her long hair reminds me of the character Sadako in the 1998 Japanese horror film, "The Ring".

With Martha Argerich having been nominated a few times, Angela Hewitt should be considered a serious contender.  Does anyone really think Argerich looks that much better than Hewitt now?  And who has actually seen a photo of Hewitt when she was young?

Society has definitely got something against older women.  Why is a male TV presenter so often partnered with a female at least 10 years his junior?  Why is it never the other way round?

I wasn't debating whether that was now or then but no one, I repeat NO ONE has that perfect skin unless they are a little kid and in that case they wouldn't be considered attractive.

With vocalists that seems to be the norm. Even vocalists in universities take those kinds of glamour shots for CDs, recitals, etc. Also, vocalists tend to be more attractive, anyways. Pianists just for the most part aren't much to look at.

Many people consider Lisitsa attractive but I think she looks terrible. Itīs obvious that she hasnīt got a stylist.

The most goodlooking male pianist (among the stars at least) is propably Peter Jablonski.

Most women here in Sweden only know about him since he is "that  goodlooking Swedish pianist" they donīt care about his piano playing at all.

Sweden in a nutshell, itīs all about the looks.  :P

I think Lisitsa has a very typical Russian/Ukrainian appearance, which can appear quite exotic.
