She was an inspiration. Somehow I expected her to go on for another few years.

It's interesting to note, given the discussion on another thread, that she had a Bösendorfer at home.

Yes -- I looked her up on youtube, and this was the first thing that came up.
I was really curious about her, especially since (go figure) I had never heard of her!

BTW, if you search her name on youtube, this other thing comes up pretty close to the top too, even though it's hardly about her.
Spoiler: It isn't serious, and it takes a little patience to get what kind of thing it is (although admittedly the title is a hint). laugh
You don't really miss anything if you flip right away to about 0:42.

Looks like Curtis might be a more fun place than I would have thought....
