Alicia de Larrocha, Adios!

On Friday 25 September the great Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha died in Barcelona. She is one of two pianists I have always loved, Claudio Arrau of Chile is the other one. Both were great and wonderful pianists, the had a fluid touch on the ivory and were true masters of the classical genre. Alicia de Larrocha had the talent to make anyone appreciate the piano pieces she played. She made it accessible to all. It was just beautiful and you could enjoy it for the sheer pleasure of it. She was a great master, someone who understands music and knows how to communicate all those notes and harmony to an audience, simply and easily.

Gracias, Alicia, por tantos años de música genial, de pasión y de sinceridad !!.
