Joseph Villa

Joseph Emil Villa (August 9, 1948 — April 13, 1995) was an American pianist.

He was born in Garfield, New Jersey. He studied at the Juilliard School under Sascha Gorodnitzki and made his debut at Alice Tully Hall in 1972. Most of his public appearances were not as a soloist, and his high reputation rests on a small number of recordings.

Villa died on April 13, 1995, aged 46, at Saint Vincent's Catholic Medical Center in Greenwich Village. The cause was AIDS, said Steven Gray, his companion.[1]
