September 30, 2015 by norman lebrecht
We are thrilled to report that Echo Klassik will give an award for lifetime achievement next month to Menahem Pressler, pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio for 55 years and now an international soloist.
Menahem, 91, is revered by four generations of musicians as a teacher, a thinker and a life-enhancing friend.
You can hear my BBC Lebrecht Interview with him here.
