Reviews

In 1920 Bela Bartok wrote: 'Musical life in Budapest today may be summed up in one name-Dohnyanyi.' This giant of 20th-century Hungarian music, as composer, pianist, conductor and teacher, is largely forgotten today. Only one or two of his compositions are occasionally played, while there are few recordings of his phenomenal instrumental artistry. However, this valuable book should inspire many readers to listen to some of his major works, and to seek out the two CDs of Dohnyanyi the pianist issued in 2004....James Grymes comments: 'Ilona [the composer's third wife] projected on to the text the image of Dohnyanyi as she wanted him to be remembered and then put his name to it.' Nevertheless, her portrait of a man of honesty, generosity, courage (when confronted by Nazism), moral strength and integrity is corroborated many times over throughout this indispensable book. * Classical Music * In 1920 Bela Bartok wrote: 'Musical life in Budapest today may be summed up in one name-Dohnyanyi.'
