Unseen video: Richard Strauss at lunch, Szymanowski in his dressing gown

Xander Rodzinski has just uploaded his grandfather’s (pictured) 1930s home movies on Youtube…. and fascinating viewing it makes.

Several immortals are caught at their leisure, including George Gershwin refusing to kiss a man on his lips.

Another world.

  • Apropos, there is really a fine 30 second clip of Ravel at 9:43.

    There are not that many film clips with Ravel. During my life I’ve seen only two other shorter clips (one at the balcony of Montfort-l’Amaury and one playing the piano, both in the 1987 documentary by Weinstein).
