Mercoledi Musicale

I'm a day late with this - which is why it has yesterday's date at the bottom. The parade of passing greats just seems to go on and on. The renowned Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha died yesterday at the age of 86. She gave her last concert in 2003 at the age of 80, thus ending a 76 year career. Her first performance was at the age of 5. This performance of "La Campanella" is almost a brilliant as the woman herself.


I have many of her recordings and only wish I could have seen her live.
