A second major pianist has just died, at 51News
On the same day as Radu Lupu’s passing, news arrives of the death from a degenerative lung condition of the formidable American pianist Nicholas Angelich.
A student of Leon Fleisher, he made most of his career in France and western Europe. Martha Argerich was a keen admirer. He made numerous recordings for Warner. A gentle giant, he had the sweetest of smiles.
This is truly a black day for music.
