NEW YORK -- Concert pianist Ruth Laredo, who recorded the entire solo works of Rachmaninoff, died Wednesday in her New York apartment. She was 67.
She had ovarian cancer and last performed May 6 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Ms. Laredo was born in Detroit and graduated from Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music in 1960. Over the years, she played at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, and the White House, performing solo or with orchestras and chamber music groups.
She also played around the world, notably in an extensive tour of Russia and Ukraine with concerts in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Odessa.
She was particularly known for two sets of recordings: the complete solo works of Rachmaninoff and the piano sonatas of Scriabin.
