For three years I have a website, where I post "out-of-copyright" (in the Netherlands) classical lp's and 78rpm's. It is updated every Friday: http://docent.cmd.hro.nl/otter/ Enjoy! Also, look at my blogs on: http://www.radio4.nl/page/blog/6053/40 and please leave a comment there (check after the capta if it worked, the time you need to refresh a capta is short, sorry for that!) From: Dictionnaire des Interpretes by Alain Paris (1995) Karolyi, Julien von (Gyula) Hungarian pianist (naturalised German 1956) Born at Losone 31st January 1914 Died at Munich 1st March 1993 He commenced his studies at Budapest in 1926. Then he worked with Joseph Pembaur (Munich), Max Pauer (Leipzig) and Alfred Cortot (Paris). He returned to Budapest to study further with Ernst von Dohnanyi (1932-34). He obtained his diplomas at Berlin and Vienna. From the age of twelve he played Chopin in public. He played the complete works in concert many times, Chopin being his favourite composer. His international career (at first European, then from 1951 in North America, finally particularly in South America) embraced particularly the great romantic composers. From 1972, he was a professor at the Hochschule in Wurzburg. Thanks for the translation, Don P. !
