goodbye, and thank you, alicia de larrocha

by pieces of moments

The New York Times reported that the great Spanish pianist Alicia De Larrocha passed away today. I was obsessed with her recording of Enrique Granados’ Valses poéticos as a teenager. Her fingers always made me think of humming birds with their small size and rapid, agile, elegant movements up and down the keyboard.
