Ruzickova and her parents were interned in a German concentration camp in 1942. She survived only to face persecution after the communists took power in 1948 in what was then Czechoslovakia.
Her international career kicked off with a victory in an international competition in Munich in 1956 and she was the first player to record all of Bach’s music for harpsichord.
Zuzana Ruzickova was 90 years gold.
