United States and Europe
Philippa's first New York Town Hall recital marked her American debut as a full-fledged adult performer. It was originally planned for April 8, 1953, but had to be postponed because she acquired a virus and this made it necessary for her to be hospitalized. As she had fully recovered by May 12, she gave her fellow New Yorkers a successful performance and received a fair response from critics. When she was twenty-two, in the fall of 1953, Philippa visited Europe for the first time, traveling across the northern part of the continent and performed twenty concerts in seven weeks. London appealed to Philippa but of all the cities she saw that fall and winter, it was Brussels she liked the best. Most of the European reviews of Philippa's performance were stunning, hailing her as a remarkable pianist, a superb mistress of the keyboard.
