father’s emergence into music: My
father had a great appreciation of beauty. He loved all the arts, and as a
child growing up, I was always encouraged to express myself artistically, for
which I am extremely grateful. When a young Miklós Rózsa left Budapest
and went off to college in Leipzig,
his father’s wish was that he become a chemist. As it turned out, Miklós spent
most of his time in the music department, as chemistry was not his true love. My
father told me that he had a good friend who tutored him in preparation for the
chemistry exams, assuring him passing grades. Abruptly my father’s friend
announced, just before final exams, that no further help would be forthcoming.
His friend told him that if he helped, my father would become a chemist, and that
he was really meant to be a musician. As a result, my father did not pass his
chemistry exams. His father was informed that he could no longer continue in
the chemistry department, and my grandfather was then asked, would Miklós
please be allowed to stay at university and pursue his true passion, which was
music. Grandfather Rózsa, under the influence of my grandmother Regina,
who had been a concert pianist before marrying, eventually granted permission.
Upon graduation my father’s first works were accepted by the esteemed publisher
Breitkopf & Härtel and Miklós Rózsa’s musical career was launched.
