”Thomas Rajna, my dad and beloved patriarch of our family after falling and breaking his hip the previous day. Thank you everyone for your wonderful outpouring of warmth and sympathy.  it increasingly difficult for him to get to the piano. However, sharp as ever, last Sunday he insisted on playing me the last movement of Schumann’s Fantasia explaining excitedly how brave and rare it is for a composer to end on a slow movement. He went on to give an impromptu lesson on Chopin’s Etude No.3. I tried to extricate him from the piano as he was out of breath but he waved me off and and I left to the strains of Chopin echoing through the garden and environs. We will announce details of a memorial in time. Thank you again from the whole family.”
