Pianist Anthony Goldstone Dies at 72

Pianist Anthony Goldstone has died. He was born in Liverpool on 25 July 1944 and studied at the Royal Manchester College of Music, where he made his debut in 1965 as part of a concert conducted by Sir John Barbirolli. Goldstone was a versatile musician, often embracing rare repertoire, and he also composed as well as completing works by Mozart and Schubert. Anthony Goldstone recorded for various labels, most recently numerous titles for Divine Art, sometimes in duet with his wife, Caroline Clemmow. He passed away on January 2, 2017 in England.

Stephen Sutton, CEO of Divine Art, who has participated on CMG in the past, wrote the following:

"We have known of Tony's illness for some time and continued working with him on his latest projects until Christmas. To say that his passing will be a loss to the music world would be a vast understatement - he was probably one of the most gifted pianists of our age yet never achieved the international public recognition he deserved. We have been proud and honoured to work with Tony and Caroline for 15 years when we issued the first volume of his Schubert Piano Masterworks; fitting that in the summer we'll be (re)-issuing the 7-CD set of Schubert's duets; also in hand is Tony's last solo recording, typically innovative and adventurous..."
Stephen Sutton, CEO, Divine Art Recordings Group

I have most of Goldstone's recordings, including those with his Wife, Caroline Clemmow. He contributed greatly to the world of piano music through his recordings.
