Birth[edit]

Was he born in 1874 or 1875? [1] Schissel | Sound the Note! 14:02, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Interesting: Google produces many citations for both, and some for "1874 or 1875", so there's clearly some real uncertainty here. It's probably best to admit we don't know. HenryFlower 15:27, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you. Next time (which may be awhile at this rate) I'm at the local university library I'll have a look at Gavoty's Reynaldo Hahn, le musicien de la Belle Époque (1976) and Mario Milanca Guzmán's Reynaldo Hahn, caraqueño : contribución a la biografía caraqueña de Reynaldo Hahn Echenagucia (1989) and see if either contains anything that sheds any light on the matter to the extent that I understand them. My French may be just good enough for the former task. Schissel | Sound the Note! 15:34, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

The Ball Beatrice d'Este[edit]

The Reynaldo Hahn I hear most often on Minnesota Public Radio is "The Ball Beatrice d'Este". If it's that popular, I think it ought to be mentioned here. Jedwards05 04:41, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

I never heard of that piece (I have the near-complete Hyperion collection of Hahn's songs; it's not included unfortunately).

How strange that Le Bal de Béatrice d'Este is not mentioned in the article! Over the years I have often heard it on the radio here in the UK – probably more often than any other work of Hahn's. I would have thought it his best known composition. It is at any rate my favourite piece of his – one of my favourite pieces of music, in fact.

Everything one could ever wish to know about it may be found in Jared G. Chase's exhaustively researched Le bal de Béatrice d'Este by Reynaldo Hahn: A Critical Edition (2011).

trying to finish this article...[edit]

The article is pretty much "finished" up until Jean Santeuil...Santeuil is about halfway done.

I really don't know how to cite a reference more than once (I went to the help section and there was a very confusing explanation). If anyone can help me with this, I'd be grateful!

What reforms?[edit]

The article ends cryptically:

"He died in 1947 of a brain tumor, without executing the reforms for which his supporters had hoped."

What reforms were those? No other references are made to them. Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:10, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Also, where did he go to escape from the Nazis and Vichy Jew-killers during World War II? Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:11, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
