Ingolf Dahl plays Schroeder playing the Pathetique Sonata

Ingolf Dahl, the stepfather of my friend Anthony Linick, took us and our friends hiking and camping many times during my youth. He was also a professor of music at USC, a composer, a conductor, and a fine pianist.

He is credited with recording the Pathetique Sonata for Schroeder. I think he must have enjoyed the idea of ghosting this video.

Among his friends that I know of were Igor Stravinsky, Leonard Bernstein, Michael Tilson Thomas, Benny Goodman, Edgar Bergen, Victor Borge and Gracie Fields.

Happy holidays and a happy new year!
