Serge Krish

Serge Krish recorded as a conductor of some orchestral recordings, as a conductor for Richard Tauber, as a pianist (he seems to have been Yovanovitch Bratza’s regular accompanist), and with his Serge Krish Septet. Although Krish is barely remembered now, his profile did receive a little boost recently – he was named as a teacher of Joyce Hatto. The official biography of Hatto from Concert Artists notes Krish as a pupil of Busoni, though I do not know whether this is confirmed or not, given the many other potentially spurious details in Hatto’s biography.
