Juliusz Loranc 25 May 2016, 78; Polish musician, composer and arranger. RIP

Since you listed Heinrich Schiff you should list Neville Marriner (English violinist, known as "one of the world's greatest conductors", died in his sleep on October 2nd at the age of 78), and I guess many other classical musicians.
Apart Heinrich Schiff I think you have not listed many other musicians from the classical music environment, which I guess should be very great although not so great as popular music, so you could decide to exclude them (perhaps for the moment, though personally I would leave who you have already listed).
Also, since you have listed many musicians from national folk music environment I would have these two entries:
[05 Sep 2016] Carlo D'Angiò (NCCP), 70?
[01 Oct 2016] Sandra Mantovani (Italian singer), 88?

My mistake: Neville Marriner died at the age of 92.

It doesn't matter if they're big or small, all the names have been added to the list. We predicted that 2017 will be worst in terms of musician deaths: http://weheartmusic.typepad.com/blog/2016/12/whm263-the-year-in-deaths-2016.html
