Sabine Meyer would be an excellent choice (a thoroughly intriguing
person as well as a great player).
However _don't_ bracket Thea (whose style is enormously different)
with certain other well-known British female players. Thea's life
story is also intriguing, though perhaps not as `wild' as Sabine's,
and she's a wonderful player.
