I've read that the Philadelphia was indeed his favourite orchestra and Ormandy his favourite conductor. Didn't he write and dedicate his Symphonic Dances for his favourite orchestra and conductor?

Sergio is Italian, I think. I don't think it's George. I'm Greek and I also know a bit Russian. As you know, Russian and Greek names are the same. Sergei and George are different names. Isn't Serge also in English besides French?

Yes you are right, it a crazy piece!


Never heard it like that before. It's the B flat from op.23. I think I saw Kogan playing? And is that Kondraschin conducting?
Interesting...
