Winifred Christie was born in Stirling, Scotland on 26 February 1882. She studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London, on a Liszt Scholarship and with Oscar Beringer (a pupil of Tausig). After graduation she studied abroad, especially with Harold Bauer. She lived in the United States (1915–1919). In 1923 she married the composer and inventor Emanuel Moór (1863–1931). He designed what became the Bechstein-Moór Duplex Grand Piano, a double keyboard instrument (164 keys on two keyboards, which allowed the playing of spreads of over two octaves with a single hand) that Christie toured almost exclusively until 1939 with music adapted by Moór to exploit its possibilities. After the war she founded the Central Music Library as well as a scholarship at the Royal Academy (of which she was a Fellow) especially to revive interest in the Moór-Duplex piano. She was also a composer of concertos, chamber music and solo piano works. She died in London on 8 February 1965.
