DOHNANYI Ernst von (D-42)

27/07/1877, Bratislava, Austro-Hungarian Empire – 09/02/1960, New York, USA

Hungarian composer, pianist and conductor. His compositional style was very personal, but very conservative. His music largely corresponds to the neo-Romantic idiom. Although he used elements of Hungarian folk music, he did not see to rely on folk traditions in the way that Bartok or Kodai do. Some characterize his style as traditional basic Euro-Germanic in a Brahminian manner (structurally more than in how the music actually sounds), and not specifically Hungarian, while others hear very little Brahms in his music. His best works may be the Serenade in C Major for String Trio, Op. 10 (1902) and Variations on a Children's Melody for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 25 (1914).
