It has only  just come to my attention that the composer and pianist  Heinz Herschmann sadly passed away, aged ninety, in September 2014.

Heinz had been a regular attendee at meetings of the Robert Farnon Society for many years, and signified his support for the London Light Music Meetings Group when the latter was formed earlier that year.

Born in Vienna, Austria, in 1924, he fled from the Nazis just before WW2, arriving in England on the Kindertransport. I am preparing a full tribute to Heinz which will appear on the website in due course.
