The great pianist Earl Wild has died today.

”As reported by his long-time companion of 38 years Michael Rolland Davis, he passed comfortably in his home in Palm Springs California after a long illness. Cause of death was congestive heart disease. He had a wonderfully full life and was still coaching pianists up until the last week of his life. He will be greatly missed. His memoirs are scheduled to be published in a few months by Carnegie Mellon Press.”

I very recently after a long hard search was able to acquire the set The Romantic Rachmaninoff 1s pressings on Readers Digest which includes the complete piano concertos The Isle of The Dead and other selections. He plays with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Conducted by Jascha Horenstein. Thanks Cat.
