The terrible loss of Christopher Falzone, 29main
It is five years since the world last heard the phenomenal talent of Christopher Falzone, a troubled American pianist who enjoyed the support of Martha Argerich among others.
Christopher seemed destined for great things. In the summer of 2014 he was consigned to a mental hospital in Geneva. In October he died in a leap from the 10th floor.
Aspects of the case remain troubling. A second musical suicide this year at a Geneva mental hospital raises further questions about safety.
May Christopher’s memory be a blessing.
