Death of a dedicated US pianist, 98main
We have been informed of the death in Massachusetts of Raymond Hanson, three weeks after his 98th birthday.
Raymond studied piano with Harold Bauer at the Hartt School of Music in 1946 and taught there until his retirement in 1992, though he continued teaching privately until this year.
His wife Anne Koscielny died two years ago.
There’s a fascinating John Mortensen interview with him here.
