PLEASE HELP THE EAR. IF YOU LIKE A CERTAIN BLOG POST, SPREAD THE WORD. FORWARD A LINK TO IT OR, SHARE IT or TAG IT (not just “Like” it) ON FACEBOOK. Performers can use the extra exposure to draw potential audience members to an event. And you might even attract new readers and subscribers to the blog.

2022 saw the death of many classical musicians.

A few of the most prominent names have been featured in other year-end lists.

But as far The Ear can tell, the most comprehensive and most international list has been posted on website of The Violin Channel, which is located in New York City.

Kudos to The Violin Channel! The list is terrifically researched, organized and executed. If you want to know more and read a fuller obituary, just click on the name in red and a link will take you to it. Here it is:

Do you know of other names — including local names — that should be included?

Leave them in the comment section.

The Ear wants to hear.

And here is a YouTube video performance of the Pie Jesu movement from the Requiem by Gabriel Faure: 


  1. It’s so great to hear from The Ear again. Happy New Year, Jake!

  2. Couldn’t agree more, Jake! I’m always glad to see your posts. I have a name to add from our local community: Eva Wright Buzecky -
    As her obituary notes: “Eva was a renaissance person, with deep ties to the Madison community.” She served at the First Unitarian Society for many years as organist, pianist, and conducted numerous choirs there. Eva was a respected voice teacher and accompanist in Madison, and lent her skills to a variety of organizations, including the Unkalung Choir, Madison Symphony Chorus, and the “Images of Labor” musical. Such an amazing musician and wonderful human being! She is missed.

    • Hi Kathy
      Thank you for your encouraging words. I hope the new year finds you well.

      Your addition of Eva Wright Buzecky — known to most I think as simply Eva Wright — is ideal. It is exactly what is needed and what I hoped for: Recognition of a local musical talent we lost I’m 2022.

      Many thanks and best wishes
