    The Italian soprano Rosanna Carteri, who sang Desdemona in Wilhelm Furtwängler’s 1952 Salzburg Otello, has died in Monaco aged 89.

    She was only 21 at the time and, although Furtwängler appears to have handed the baton to Mario Rossi, she went on to enjoy a busy international career over the next decade until, in her early 30s, she retired to raise a family.

    Default Eric Parkin passed away on October 28th at 96





    The English pianist Eric Parkin, much favored by the BBC for his championship of British composers, has died at a great age. From his radio debut in 1948 to his very late years he was hardly ever off the radio, whether in studio, at the Proms or with his highly successful recordings on the Chandos label.

    Parkin, who came from Stevenage in Hertfordshire, won renown as the leading champion of the music of John Ireland. He also played works by Arnold Bax, Geoffrey Bush, Peter Dickinson, David Gow, Kenneth Leighton, E J Moeran and Richard Stoker.

    He was a very good pianist who let himself be pigeonholed too easily by BBC producers

    Default Peter Fanger passed away at Oct 29th at 74



    Music director of the Riesa Symphony Orchestra, now known as the Elbland Philharmonie, he was professor at the Carl Maria von Weber Academy in Dresden and leder of the choirs at the Frauenkirche and Lukaskirche.



    From his Dresden obituary: The conductor Peter Fanger was not the podium star with droves of disciples. But he was still known and highly valued by a great many people. An artist who has worked with continuity, ability, reliability and vision where it is a matter of bringing music to people, steering ensembles through difficult times and thereby helping the audience…. The Saxon musical landscape owes a lot to Peter Fanger.
