I received a report a few minutes ago that Jane Parker Smith has, sadly, passed away.

 

She was a vivacious player with a wide repertoire, not eschewing  romantic pieces as some recitalists have.  However, she kept well away from the cathedral circuit achieving a fine career as a recitalist.

 

Her recording legacy is superb.

 

May she rest in peace.

R was very shocked about this when he heard this afternoon, Barry.   It seems to have been very sudden and she had only just turned 70 :(

 

It's why I think carpe diem...
