UPDATE: Classicalite is indeed deeply sadened to report that pianist Alice Herz-Sommer has passed away. She was, as we last reported, 110 years old. Of the fount of tributes pouring in, we like this one from Haaretz best.
This Chanukah, the world’s oldest pianist is celebrating her 110th birthday. Alice Herz-Sommer, these days resident in London, survived the Theresienstadt concentration camp to enjoy a distinguished career.
