What a incredible array of pianists and artists. I plan to be there 5 PM. But, if I had to forecast, you'll be finished by 11 PM!

I am so sorry not to be there to celebrate Joe in person.
A friend for over forty years, Joe has always been there for good advice.
A true loyal individual with an incredible love for the piano and pianist he recorded
for years. I miss you Joe. ❤️😢🎶

Love you,
Elaine Godowsky

I met Joe Patrick on December 4, 2023 at the last of the 3 concerts that Klavierhause dedicated to my mother, the pianist Alicia de Larrocha, as a tribute for the centennial of her birth. It was a pleasure to participate in the subsequent discussion with a person with so much musical culture. I will always be grateful to him for his kindness and for joining in the commemoration of my mother's centenary.
When we said goodbye, we agreed that we would write to each other (I live in Barcelona) to exchange recordings and opinions. It couldn't be... After a few days I found out that he was no longer among us.
I join this tribute in memory of Joe!!
