Duda – gone with the wind to a far better place than even she could imagine

Danuta Chmielecka Alovisi… Duda era il diminutivo per gli amici

Devo a Duda tantissimo: la conoscenza di Fou ts’ong e dei Penderecki, di Annarosa, di Christopher e di Bill, del mondo della musica che ha fatto la storia. Devo a Duda il mio amore per la cultura polacca, per il Concorso Chopin. Lei è sempre stata la prima ascoltatrice delle mie trasmissioni, la più acuta, attenta, intelligente osservatrice di suoni trasmessi alla radio che abbia mai avuto vicino. Ti sono infinitamente grata, meravigliosa Danuta, per avermi insegnato così tanto ❤️…i tuoi insegnamenti continuano a vivere in me, Mattia, Magda, Attilio, Michelangelo, e chissà quanti ancora. Un abbraccio infinito a Ezio, leone d’amore sempre al tuo fianco 💗

Duda just behind Ts’ong was a Polish pianist and harpsichordist ……she lived and taught in Frascati and had known Ts’ong since his days as a student in Poland.He would often visit her when playing for us in Rome.Zimerman was a close friend and would stay with his family with her ………her pupils include Michelangelo Carbonara and Mattia Ometto amongst many others .Danuta ……….was her name but we all knew her as Duda .This photo was after one of his many masterclasses for us with Ileana in the middle and Linda Alberti who also lives in Frascati on the end.Linda was looking after her and helping her husband Ezio who is also very ill.Ezio and Duda were well into their nineties and had enjoyed an unexpected Indian summer in their move to a smaller more manageable house .Bill Naboré ,Roberto Prosseda and I were planning to visit her on the occasion of Shunta Morimotos recital in Frascati last April She was not well enough for us to visit and we missed all her reminiscences about Ts’ong for the planned biography that is in the pipeline

So sorry that our darling Duda( behind Fou Ts’ong)has decided to join Ts’ong and Ileana this morning ……Gone with the wind on wings of song ………
