Alicia De Laroccha
Alicia de Laroccha, famed Spanish pianist and interpreter of Mozart, died last Friday at the age of 86. You can hear some of her performances of Mozart's Piano Sonatas at CD 786.2 2183 M939 K.279; K281; and K309. We also have her performance of Granados' Danzas Espagnolas on vinyl at PHONO 786.4 G748!
Artsjournal's video of the day today is a of her performing Mozart Concerto No. 27 in B flat, 3rd Movement with the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana. And Norman Lebrecht has a remembrance here.
