Life without a man bothered Philippa deeply, but she refused to admit that it did often saying to newspaper reporters that she found young men very jealous of her music and citing that she was single since as a concert pianist she had to spend much time on tour. On the contrary, Philippa was desperate to marry because she was already twenty-seven and she was particularly interested in Andre Gascht. Convinced that she wanted to settle in Europe and marry a European, she wanted to spend some time with her friends in Belgium, Holland, and France but her mother greatly opposed such a trip. But in the year 1960, Philippa was emotionally devastated when she and Andre broke up. Ironically, this was also one of her most productive years.

Keywords:   men, tour, marriage, Andre Gascht, 1960
