Dwarf tinamou

The dwarf tinamou known as the least tinamou, is a small, superficially partridge-like bird with short tail and wings. All tinamou are from the family Tinamidae, in the larger scheme are ratites. Unlike other ratites, tinamous can fly. All ratites evolved from prehistoric flying birds, tinamous are the closest living relative of these birds; the dwarf tinamou is a monotypic species. It is 16 cm long, it is greyish-brown with a pale throat, boldly patterned neck and upper parts, it has brown-barred buff underparts and a blackish crown. Some individuals are darker and greyer than others, but it remains unclear if these plumage variations are morphs or differences between the sexes; the iris and legs are dull yellowish. It resembles a small dumpy nothura, but is more confused with the ocellated crake, its voice consists of high-pitched cricket-like trills followed by peet notes. The dwarf tinamou is found in the arid scrub grasslands, around 1,000 m in elevation, restricted to the Cerrado region of interior southeastern Brazil in Distrito Federal, Goiás, Minas Gerais, Mato Grosso do Sul, São Paulo and Paraná.

Specimens were known from Paraguay and Argentina, but all recent records are from Brazil. It is, however inconspicuous and overlooked; the diet of the dwarf tinamou consists of grass seeds, termites and arthropods. The dwarf tinamou is threatened by the ongoing habitat loss caused by mechanised agriculture, intensive cattle-ranching, invasive grasses, excessive use of pesticides and annual burning, it is hunted by people for food in some areas. Farming and ranching are its largest threats; the dwarf tinamou is evaluated as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It has an occurrence range of 57,700 km2, the last population estimate, done in 2000, showed between 5,800 and 6,960 adults; the dwarf tinamou is being conserved in three protected areas: Serra da Canastra National Park, Itapetininga Experimental Station and the IBGE Roncador Biological Reserve. Several areas adjacent to the Río Bermejo, have been surveyed with the aid of tape-playback, but the species has not been found.

It was proposed to survey Serra do Cipó National Park, Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park and Emas National Park for this species with the aid of tape-playback. And conduct further surveys in Argentina and Paraguay in the areas where the specimen was collected, it was proposed to determine best management practices for existing protected areas and control the burning of cerrado habitats.

Mieczysław Horszowski

Mieczysław Horszowski was a Polish-American pianist who had one of the longest careers in the history of the performing arts. Horszowski was born in Lwów, Austria-Hungary and was taught by his mother, a pupil of Karol Mikuli, he became a pupil of Theodor Leschetizky in Vienna at the age of seven. Leschetizky's sister-in-law, Angele Potocka, referred to Horszowski as "a wunderkind of high order". In 1901 he gave a performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in Warsaw and soon after toured Europe and the Americas as a child prodigy. In 1905 the young Horszowski met Camille Saint-Saëns in Nice. In 1911 Horszowski put his performing career on hold in order to devote himself to literature and art history in Paris. While Horszowski's family was of Jewish origin, he was himself an early convert to Roman Catholicism, was devout; as the French critic André Tubeuf has written, "Horszowski was both Jewish and Catholic, in both cases as only a Pole could have been." Horszowski, five feet tall, had rather small hands, reaching just over one octave.

Horszowski's performances were known for their natural, unforced quality, balancing intellect and emotion. He was praised for his tonal quality, as was common for pupils of Leschetizky. Having returned to the concert stage with the encouragement of Pablo Casals, he settled in Milan after the First World War, remaining there until he emigrated to the United States during World War II. Following the war, Horszowski gave recitals with artists such as Casals, Alexander Schneider, Joseph Szigeti and the Budapest Quartet, he appeared at the Prades Festival and the Marlboro Festival. From 1940 Horszowski lived in the United States, first in New York City and in Philadelphia, he became an American citizen in 1948. Horszowski performed with the NBC Symphony Orchestra under Toscanini, with whom he was friends, in 1943 and 1953. During the 1954–1955 season, he gave a memorable cycle of Beethoven's entire solo piano works in New York. In 1960 he did the same for Mozart's piano sonatas, his diverse and extensive repertoire embraced such composers as Honegger, d'Indy, Martinů, Stravinsky and Villa-Lobos.

In 1979, the pianist recorded several works of Lodovico Giustini on a restored Cristofori pianoforte. These works had been commissioned by Cristofori and are the first known compositions written for the pianoforte. Horszowski twice performed at the White House: with Casals and Schneider in 1961 for President Kennedy and a solo performance in 1979 for President Carter. Horszowski was recorded and can be heard on the HMV, Columbia, RCA, Vanguard and other labels, his final recordings for Nonesuch were made. He taught at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where his pupils included Robert Dennison, Julius Eastman, Richard Goode, Dina Koston, Anton Kuerti, Murray Perahia, Peter Serkin, Steven De Groote, Kathryn Selby, Cecile Licad, Leslie Spotz. In 1981 the 89-year-old Horszowski married an Italian pianist. Bice edited Horszowski's memoirs and a volume of his mother's correspondence about Horszowski's early years, she discovered and recorded some songs composed by Horszowski on French texts around 1913–1914.

Horszowski's final performance took place in Philadelphia in October 1991. He died in that city a month before his 101st birthday, he gave his final lesson a week before his death.
