At the Proms launch last night, I chatted briefly to Martin Anderson, founder of Toccata Press and Toccata Classics, and all-round enthusiast for interesting and important music.
Martin confided to me that Yodit, ‘the love of my life’, was dying in hospital of stomach cancer.
Yodit died at 2.15 this morning, aged 44. She is survived by Martin and their son Alex, 5.
Yodit and Martin met seven years ago at a concert in Cadogan Hall. They had planned to get married this spring, but the cancer was too quick.
Several composers are writing pieces in her memory.
May she rest in peace.
And may music bring comfort to Martin and Alex.
