Noelle Mann

May 5, 2010

Just heard the very sad news that my dear friend and one-time ‘pupil’ (though she taught me more than I ever taught her), Noelle Mann, has died.

Champion of Russian music and Prokofiev in particular, moving spirit behind so much research and performance, Blackheath neighbour, endless source of inspiration, laughter and fun…

David Nice on his website http://davidnice.blogspot.com/2010/04/farewell-noelle.html has said it all better than I can (and please also read the comments from friends and colleagues).

Farewell, Noelle, and condolences to Chris and their children. We loved you, and you brought us so much music and happiness.
