Oh, how sad. I just love every recording by him. What a loss to the world, not to mention his family and friends.

How very sad, and so young. I treasure his Bartok, of course, and also his Liszt and Debussy.

Very sad to learn this. Kocsis was an highly gifted pianist; I know not a great deal of his conducting work. His recordings of Bach's keyboard concertos with the Franz Liszt Orchestra under Simon are exemplary, very fine and memorable, indeed [Hungaroton 31695-96, 2 CDs].

Wonderful Bartok player. And far too young.
