Hailed in the 60's not only as the finest British pianist of his generation with a glittering international career and record contract with EMI Music,but as a musical genius of extraordinary ability. In 1973 at the pinnacle of his fame John Ogdon was struck down inexplicably by the first in a series of severe mental breakdowns. In this moving account his wife, concert pianist Brenda Lucas Ogdon, tells both of the happy years of touring, when success piled upon success and of the distressing years of illness with their long search for effective treatment. John died tragically and suddenly from undiagnosed Diabetes and Pneumonia, in 1989. He was mourned by countless friends and admirers.
