A diminutive Spanish pianist with a giant talent passed away Friday night. Alicia de Larrocha was beloved as an interpreter of both Mozart and Spanish composers, and played with a lightness and subtlety that seemed to match her small stature. She gave her first recital at five, had her orchestral debut at age nine, and continued her career until just a few years ago when she formally retired. In addition to her role as a concert artist, she was a capable and respected teacher and arts administrator at the Frank Marshall School in Barcelona, where she herself studied with the founder as a child.
