In the midst of Canada’s tragedy lies a Clementi pianistmain
In the outpouring of grief for the 15 young hockey players who died in a weekend road crash, Canadians are discovering that one of the team was a gifted classical pianist.
Xavier Labelle, 18, was originally from Saskatoon. He played cello before moving over to the piano. And he loved that 18th century master, Muzio Clementi.
We mourn with his family and all of Canada.
UPDATE: We are delighted to report that Xavier is alive. He was misidentified among the dead, an appalling error.
