Stanley Sadie Passes Away

Stanley Sadie has passed away. For those of us in various fields of music, we saw his work almost every day in the New Grove dictionaries, the unflagging starting point for any and all historical research in music.

In an email forwarded from one of my professors: After the concert was over the Chilingirian [Quartet] quietly came over and, sitting down in the room with Stanley, played the slow movement from op.135. It was deeply moving - Stanley gradually woke up and listened, gently, all alert again, but so weak. He rallied enough to be helped upstairs but then lapsed into a peaceful sleep.

Karl Haas Passes Away

Goodbye, Everyone... Karl Haas has passed away at the age of 91. Barely anyone knew what he looked like, but his show Adventures in Good Music (running since 1959) brought millions of people into the world of Classical Music. He was also the author of Inside Music, now in its 10th printing.
