Vladimir Ashkenazy has given up playing in public
« on: May 03, 2007, 02:17:04 AM »
Just announced in Corriere della Sera:

Vladimir Ashkenazy has just indicated he has given up playing the piano in public, apparently due to arthritis in his fingers although he may continue recording, 'pointing out that in the studio, he can stop and start if necessary and so repair any mistakes.'
