The Lebanese pianist Henri Goraieb, presenter of Les Archives Lyriques on France Musique for eighteen years, has died at 85.

Goraieb, a Schumann specialist with a lively international career, was diabled by a stroke almost 20 years ago but bounced back after five years’ rehab to resume giving concerts.
