A much-loved American pianist has diedmain
The quiet legend that was Howard Karp has gone to his rest aged 84. Howard, Chicago born, heard Rachmaninov play and was smitten for life. He taught at the University of Wisconsin in Madison for over 30 years and performed there every season for ten years more.
He made a few recordings, most recently a Schubert album on the Albany label. A fabulous, old-school artist.
