YouTube of Henryk Szeryng playing Ravel's Tzigane

Any idea who the pianist is on this YouTube video of Henryk Szeryng playing Ravel's Tzigane? He certainly plays the deadly repeated-note tutti well, if a little slow.


  1. I think it's Tasso Janopoulo (I may have the spelling wrong). He's also the pianist on old encore recordings with Jacques Thibaud (old as in the 1920s, that is).

  2. Thanks, rjm. Janopoulo also plays on the Fontaine d'Aretheuse cinephonie film with Thibaud (see 1/30/07 posting with embedded video), although only his hands are shown in the film.
