Alicia de Larrocha

The great Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha died this past weekend.  She was a true artist, with a very individual musical personality and approach to piano playing.  She also proved that size does not matter when it comes to playing anything at all on the piano, as she did it all with her diminutive hands.  And she did it great, with fire!  See the New York Times obituary.

Please share your thoughts about this great musician, especially if you have any anecdotes about her!
