Moriz Rosenthal in word and music : a legacy of the nineteenth century by Mark Mitchell( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these pieces, we see every facet of Moriz Rosenthal: the memoirist offering a moving and sometimes hilarious account of his childhood; the social critic describing the intellectual and cultural life on nineteenth-century Vienna; the pedagogue passing on his knowledge to younger musicians; the virtuoso recalling his friendships with great composers and interpreters (and occasionally parrying with reviewers). Rosenthal could write with gravity and pathos of a Chopin composition, yet he was also a famous wit whose sharp and often devastating bons mots have become the stuff of legend." "This volume combines selections from Rosenthal's writings with critical assessments of the pianist by such contemporaries as Eduard Hanslick, Edward Prime-Stevenson, and Hugo Wolf. It is rounded out with an introduction by editors Mark Mitchell and Allan Evans; a preface by Charles Rosen, one of Rosenthal's pupils; a discography and concertography; and a CD featuring never before released Rosenthal recordings."--Jacket
Ignaz Friedman : romantic master pianist by Allan Evans( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Polish-born composer and pianist Ignaz Friedman summarized his approach to music by stating simply: "There are the notes, there is what is behind the notes." In Allan Evans's biography of the master pianist he shows the reader the behind and the between of Friedman's life and work. An admirable task, since an account of Friedman has appeared in only one book to date, and weighed in at only a few paragraphs. Friedman's repertory emphasized the major works of Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, and Brahms, but also included new scores by Novák, Palmgren, Karl Weigl, Kodály, and Glazunov. He is most notably associated with his interpretation of the Chopin Mazurkas, which by all accounts he played with the same rhythmic nuance as their composer. Evans examines Friedman's life as a cultured Jewish musician from Poland; his studies in Leipzig and Vienna; his marriage to Many Schidlowsky: and his performing career, teaching, and retirement in Australia
