Balint Vazsonyi (March 7, 1936-January 2003) was a Hungarian-American pianist, perhaps best known for playing all thirty-two chronological cycles of Beethovens sonatas. Vazsonyi also was an author who wrote extensively on political science in the Washington Times and other media sources. The collection consists of concert programs, reviews, correspondence, newspaper and magazine articles, recordings, lectures, scrapbooks, brochures, manuscripts, books, and videos related to Vazsonyis performing and teaching careers, the ensembles he was involved in, events in his life, his political involvement, and his relationships with several people and organizations, especially his teacher, Ernst von Dohnanyi, and his management, Kazuko Hillyer International, Inc.

Historical Note

Summary: Balint Vazsonyi was born in Budapest, Hungary on March 7, 1936. Vaszonyi toured the U.S. and Europe, performed all 32 Beethoven sonatas, and wrote extensively on political science for The Washington Times. He died in January 2003.

Full History: Balint Vazsonyi was born in Budapest, Hungary on March 7, 1936. He began his piano studies early at the Liszt Music Academy and the Vienna Academy of Music. Later, he immigrated to the U.S. and continued his studies under Ernst von Dohnanyi at Florida State University. Vazsonyi toured the U.S. and Europe, as well as making numerous television and radio appearances. He also performed several cycles of all 32 Beethovens sonatas. His recordings were issued on the Vox, Pye, and Genesis labels. Vazsonyi was also deeply interested in political science and wrote extensively on that subject for The Washington Times and elsewhere. He died in January 2003.

A separate, highly significant portion of the Vazsonyi Collection consists of materials that he gathered relating to the life and career of his teacher, Dohnanyi. Many of these unique documents, the majority in Hungarian, were used by Vazsonyi while preparing his biography of Dohnanyi. At the request of donor Barbara Vazsonyi, a portion of the Dohnanyi materials in Hungarian were transferred to the library of the Liszt academy in Budapest in 2004. This book was published by Zenemukiado in 1971.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Balint Vazsonyi Collection covers the period from 1949-2003; the bulk of the materials date from 1960-2000. The collection consists of concert programs and reviews, reel-to-reel and commercially issued recordings, flyers, scrapbooks, and biographical information and articles concerning Vazsonyi. It also contains articles, lectures, teaching activities, books, papers, and films written by Vazsonyi about music and politics, as well as information about Vazsonyis involvement in politics. Finally, this collection contains correspondences between Vazsonyi and many different organizations and people. This collection represents Vazsonyis recordings and lectures by composers such as Brahms and Liszt and articles he wrote about his former teacher, Dohnanyi. The materials reflect Vazsonyis performances and teaching activities with the Boston Conservatory, the New School of the Arts, and Indiana University, as well as his performances at the Hungarian Embassy (Washington, DC) and in places throughout the U.S., Europe, and Africa.
