Harriet Pearl Alice Cohen CBE (2 December 1895 – 13 November 1967) was a British pianist. Harriet Cohen was born in London and studied piano at the Royal Academy of Music under Tobias Matthay, having won the Ada Lewis scholarship at the age of 12 followed by the Sterndale Bennett Prize in 1913. She made her debut at a Chappell's Sunday concert at the Queen's Hall a year later. Her first major appearance was in 1920 when she appeared at the Wigmore Hall in a joint recital with the tenor John Coates.

Profile: British pianist (2 December 1895 – 13 November 1967).

Harriet Cohen made her first public appearance as a solo pianist at the age of 13. She then engaged in a successful career in England, both as a soloist with major orchestras and in chamber music concerts. Small hands limited her repertory, but she quickly made a reputation as a Bach player and also played many contemporarily composers. She played at the Salzburg Contemporary Music Festival in 1924, at the Coolidge Festival, Chicago

Harriet Cohen is best know of her relationships, Illustrated by Helen Fry and her book Music & Men - the Life and Loves of Harriet Cohen

Harriet Cohen (1895-1967) was one of the leading British pianists of her age, but her unusually small hands ( I cannot normally cover more than eight notes with each hand ) led her naturally to specialize in intimate classical and pre-classical works, rather than in any thundering octaves of nineteenth-century piano music. She was peerless in Mozart and Bach. Cohen as a person was alluring both on- and offstage, and legion were those who fell under her spell - musicians and others alike. To Edward Elgar she was Harrietinachen, and for William Walton my dear, sweet, neglected Harriet.
