A few days ago, I heard for the first time about pianist André Tchaikowsky (1935-1982). Someone sent me an article about his bequeathing his skull to the Royal Shakespeare Company (yes, for use in Hamlet productions). Quite a story. Has anyone else heard of this pianist? Did anyone here know him? His web site is chock full of recordings, photos, and a PDF of his biography. I searched this site to see if there was any mention of him, and since there wasn't, thought I might share my "discovery."
Here are some links if you are interested:
The main web site: http://andretchaikovsky.com
The biography in PDF form: http://andretchaikowsky.com/biography/book/andre.pdf
