The Polish-born Mexican pianist Eva Maria Zuk died on February 28 in Mexico City at the age of 71.

Originally from Lodz, she was taken by her family to Venezuela as a baby. Arthur Rubinstein, who heard her play as a child and came from the same city, arranged for her to study at Juilliard.

An outstanding Chopin interpreter, she settled in Mexico in the 1970s after marrying the conductor Enrique Batiz.



  • Carmen-Helena Tellez says:

    She was a wonderful pianist, indeed! She also honored the music of her adopted countries, where she was considered a national artist.
