Ilana Mysior Remembered

The San Diego Union-Tribune has a lovely remembrance of Ilana Mysior, long-time pianist with the San Diego Opera and San Diego Symphony. A quote from her colleague Ronald Goldman:
“Sometimes pianists (only) hear themselves and don’t really listen to anyone else,” Goldman said. “She was a great accompanist because she was very aware, she knew what everyone else was doing and she was able to be captain of the ship.”
I also found a short tribute and MP clip from Ilana's final concert in 2007.


  1. Ilana was my teacher. She had the tremendous gift of finding the one thing you played well, and building you up from there. Her warmness is tremendously missed.
