From the Monaco office of Valentin Proczynski, who staged many events with  Rostropovich, Prêtre, Solti, Maazel, Menuhin, Masur and Carlos Kleiber :

Dear Colleagues, Partners and Friends,

It is with the deepest regret and sorrow that we announce the demise of Maestro Valentin Proczynski, who fought until the end against his illness for the sake of Art and Music.
A ceremony will take place at Chapel of the Monaco Cemetery on 4th January 2019 at 14h30.
He was a benefactor of “Médecins du Monde” and the “Ligue contre le Cancer”. 
Should you want to express your condolences, instead of buying flowers you can make a donation to one of these organisations.
We are sure the Light of his work will continue to shine in the years to come.
All Partners, Artists and Promoters, with ongoing projects will shortly be reached separately to finalise the events.

    Partecipiamo del triste evento da San Paolo del Brasile, condoglianze e pace all’anima sua…

  • I have just now known about Maestro Proczynski´s decent, and I am very sad. He was the person who helped me to achieve appreciation in Italy in the late eighties and 90ies. I remember so well, when he invited me for wonderful dinners in Ravello Festival. He was one of the persons who was important for me. Thank you, Maestro!
