I didn’t realise Dohnanyi was such an all round good musician with a conscience. Not only did he write symphonies,  concerti, and deliciously romantic chamber music, he was a great piano soloist, conductor and teacher in Berlin, Budapest and America. He also did what he could to resist the Nazis and help Jewish musicians.
