Sad to hear this. He is truly one of the greats. His Bach recordings are unequaled by any pianist ever, I think -- the warmth and humanity of Schiff with the precision and electricity of Gould, informed by a musical imagination that is just revelatory. He's had so many struggles with the physicality of playing the piano -- let's hope he bounces back again as he has done before. I will not ever miss an opportunity to hear him play.
