From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The native form of this personal name is Dohnányi Ernő. This article uses the Western name order.

Ernő Dohnányi

Ernő Dohnányi (Hungarian: [ˈɛrnøː ˈdohnaːɲi]; July 27, 1877 – February 9, 1960) was a Hungarian conductor, composer and pianist. He used a German form of his name, Ernst von Dohnányi, on most of his published compositions. The “von” implies nobility, and, according to the biography by his third wife, his family was ennobled in 1697 and given a “seal,” which she describes in some detail.[1]

AMAZONIA: LAST CALL (The lungs of the Planet are getting to small for the Planet’s survival)

Ep. 3.THE VOICE OF THE JUNGLE: The protection of Indian cultures, headed by Sidney Pssuelo. This series travels across Brazilian landscapes by way of one of the main links still binding the essence of humanity with the Earth: the Amazon. The filming of the first point of contact with an isolated race, the Zos, the encroachment on areas of the Amazonian forest previously uncaptured on film, the evidence relating to the development of the illegal trafficking of species or the recording of the immeasurable value of Brazil’s natural spaces; these are just excerpts from the series. The underlying theme is the conflict between the development and conservation of one of the key natural areas underpinning the stability of the planet.

Valentina Lisitsa plays for passengers at St Pancras International Station (from the musical front)

While Valentina Lisitsa was busy in the UK with promotion for Rachmaninov, there were some problems with bad weather so her Eurostar train back to Paris had to be cancelled and she ended up stuck at St Pancras International for some time! However, the delay did not deter her from taking to one of the station’s Street Pianos and performing for passers-by in the station!

No, it should never be called a “recording session“. What recording sessions are usually about is being extra cautious, hitting all the right notes at the right time, clean, clinical 🙂 Since it was a self-funded “enterprise” operating on a shoestring budget , I could afford a little tiny bit more risk ;  -) Nothing to lose other than a house ( and thank you, friendly bank, for letting me borrow money against my house ). After such a decision playing Rach #3 is not really scary 🙂 Particularly with great London Symphony Orchestra, arguably the one of the very best on this planet. And with equally brave brilliant maestro Michael Francis – who at that time was “doubling” as a double-bass player at LSO , now heading skywards with a major conducting career:-)
