Sad loss of a Mahler pianistmain
We are distressed by news of the death of Janos Solyom, a Hungarian soloist who made his home in Sweden. He was 78.
When I floated the idea of an all-day Mahler cycle in Stockholm, played in the piano reductions, Janos was among the first to volunteer, playing the fifth symphony with great brio.
My sympathies to his wife, Camilla, and nephew Stefan.
