I have never heard than Janos Starker is Jewish - though I never heard
he wasn't, either. (His bald eagle-like head suggests Magyar to me! -
Just guessing.

Also, Paul Wittgenstein wasn't a violinist. A good thing, too, since
he lost an arm in WWI. A one-handed pianist, yes; but violinist ...

I don't believe her family were particularly upset about it. I read her
biography by Hilary and Piers Du Pre recently and I don't remember anything
like that.

All the best

And included a couple who do not belong: Max Steiner, for instance, was not
Jewish.
I believe Steiner had a Jewish grandfather, although he did not really
consider himself Jewish and was raised a Catholic. He was often
mistakenly thought of in Hollywood as being Jewish, and reportedly
told his wife something along the lines of "It's good for business, so
let people think what they want." His son was baptised in the
Epispocal Church (Steiner's wife's religion).

You forgot Hitler's favourite tenor, Max Lorenz. But then you don't seem to
have singers in your list at all.

Of course not. He said Jewish *musicians*.

Which also explains the absence of violists from his list.

Which would be odd, since quite a few of
the greatest violists were indeed Jewish.

just want to add the name of the Roumanian, Mindru Katz, pianist, to
the list <

[I am sure you didn't do it with bad intentions but *please* avoid putting
my name in postings' headers -- thanks!!]

Mindru Katz was a Romanian-Jewish pianist with a good reputation in
Romania. He immigrated to Israel before I could have heard him live.
Incidentally, I never heard recordings (which I know exist) of him, either
-- perhaps I should?

And there's another reason, apart from simple netiquette, not to put a
newsgroup contributor's name in the subject line. He could have set his
filter so as not to display any thread with his name (or rude variants!) in
it ... as I have done, for obvious reasons. It makes the newsgroup *so*
much nicer, easier, and faster to read through. ;--)

As I recall, Mindru Katz recorded the "Emperor" piano concerto with
Sir John Barbirolli and the Halle Orchestra. This appeared on LP on
Pye in the UK and on Vanguard in the USA. That's the only recording I
think I've ever heard by him. --E.a.C.

And Mordecai Shehori, who was a student of Mindru Katz, has reissued
that on his own label.

I think it's been released on cd with some other Barbirolli - there's also a
Katchaturian concerto paired with somethingelse I've got on my shelves. I
think of him as viscerally exciting, not particularly deep - kind of a more
techinically proficient Mewton-Woods (whom I don't get at all).
have a live Hammerkalvier recorded in Israel..... very "deep",
especially the slow movement
