Pianist in Florida dazzles at age 101

I’ve documented very young pianists here, but I thought I would pass along an ABC news story about Gertrude Matthews, who at age 101 and with no disabilities, plays piano at a restaurant in Palm Beach, FL. It does sound like Trump country.

The music was mostly “popular” in tone, but she demonstrated great technique in the piano clip.

Artur Rubenstein played concerts until age 89. He made many of his major early stereo recordings for RCA (especially of Rachmaninoff) while in his 70s.
