Canada mourns a cherished pianist, aged 54

Peter Longworth, Toronto’s go-to pianist for everything from a Brahms recital to a top-up lesson, has died of kidney cancer at an early age. He is survived by his wife, daughter, parents and sister. Tributes are pouring in from every level of music making.

 

‘The Toronto music community has lost one of its best members today,’ writes one group.
