Fake news alert: Paul Badura-Skoda is alive (but unwell)main
Social media was awash last night with reports of the death of the international Austrian pianist.
His partner Elisabeth has sent out an email that he is still alive, fighting the same condition that has affected him for the past four years. One of our friends has an appointment to speak to him later today.
Badura-Skoda is 91. He gave his most recent recital five months ago.
UPDATE: The false news spread chiefly on US sites and Chinese social media.
