Death of British pianist, 88

The gifted Rosemarie Wright has died at 88.

She made an explosive debut, stepping in for Martha Argerich at the larger hall of Vienna’s Musikverein in 1960, and was much in demand across Europe. At home, she specialised in the works of British composers Edmund Rubbra and Arnold Cooke.

She was professor of piano at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, and the Royal Academy of Music, London.
