In Memoriam Alexei Sultanov

I was sad to learn today of the death of pianist Alexei Sultanov:

"His astounding roller-coaster career, which included a gold-medal triumph at the 1989 Cliburn competition when he was still a teen-ager, ended quietly Thursday morning when he died in his sleep at his Fort Worth home."
Read the rest.

The website for Sultanov was recently one of my web picks. You find it here.

Thank you for giving us a news about Alexei Sultanov. It is the great sadness for his loss, but we never forget his astonished performance.

The Chicago Trib is running a multi-part retrospective on Alexei Sultanov this week (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/specials/broadband/chi-pianist-htmlstory,1,6972677.htmlstory?coll=chi-news-hed ). Some of it is very painful to read, but worthwhile.
