Stavo ascoltando Listz e leggendo un numero a caso (tirato fuori dalla liberia così, senza guardare mese o senza una ricerca specifica …) e mi imbatto nello studioso che ha smentito il rapporto Hogson contro HPB, Vernon Harrison (il quale dimostra scientificamente la questione dell’inchiostro nelle lettere …) e scopro che Harrison era anche fondatore della Listz society ed era grande studioso del compositore. Il caso fa bene le cose eh ?
… In 1984, Harrison became interested in the early SPR ‘Hodgson Report‘ in which Helena Petrovna Blavatsky was stigmatised as one of the most gifted, ingenious and interesting ‘impostors‘ in history. Harrison studied the various documents concerned, for an initial report – “J’Accuse: An Examination of the Hodgson Report of 1885” – published on 8 May 1986 by the SPR (and revised after more research by Harrison in 1997). Harrison ultimately concluded that the Hodgson Report was not scientifically undertaken, but was “flawed and untrustworthy,” and “should be read with great caution, if not disregarded.”
A lifelong photography enthusiast, he was, between 1974 and 1976, President of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, and among his other interests counts the music of Franz Liszt. He is the surviving co-founder, and a past chairman, of the (English) Liszt Society.
