  • I have one with Zsa Zsa Gabor. During one of our visits at her home, she introduced me to a Hungarian lady who took care of her in Hungary when the Gabors were quite young. This was in 1988. The lady was a piano pupil of Ernst von Dohnanyi and knew her music.

  • The term “classical” has always been difficult to define, but including Irving Berlin in that category stretches it to nearly meaningless extreme.

  • From 2015…

    Renee Fleming, Meryl Streep and Christine Baranski (I don’t know where the photo is but I’ve seen it)…..

    Oh.. and Fleming with Patrick Stewart

    There must be other current ones with other classical musicians. I’m sure Domingo, especially….
