Evgeny Kissin posted the following message on his Instagram account: « My old teacher Anna Pavlovna Kantor has just left this world… she was 98 years old… Soon after I began my studies with her, Anna Pavlovna became for me much more than just a teacher: during all these years she has been a real friend, like a family member. She became very close to our whole family, and 30 years ago she moved to live with us.

She was my only piano teacher, and everything I am able to do on the piano I owe to her. She was a truly remarkable woman, a person of rare integrity and purity.

Blessed be her memory always… »
