Moriz Rosenthal in word and music a legacy of the nineteenth century by Mark Mitchell ( )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,313 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."--BOOK JACKET
The Penguin book of gay short stories by David Leavitt ( Book )
13 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"These stories illuminate the common ground of gay male experience - as well as its astonishing diversity."--Jacket
Pages passed from hand to hand : the hidden tradition of homosexual literature in English from 1748 to 1914 ( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"There have been several recent anthologies of twentieth-century gay fiction, but Mark Mitchell and David Leavitt's book is the first to explore the texts that circulated before the genre of "gay fiction" came into being, and before greater tolerance allowed writers to treat homosexual themes directly. The result is both an entertaining and a revelatory anthology, and a valuable contribution to our understanding of the literary treatment of homosexuality."--Jacket
Virtuosi : a defense and a (sometimes erotic) celebration of great pianists by Mark Mitchell ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In essays rich with anecdote, Mark Mitchell explores the many domains of the virtuoso, taking on such subjects as music competitions, the phenomenon of the child prodigy, the virtuoso in literature and film, encores, seating habits, and the erotics of musical performance. The characters who populate his evocative narrative include not only such famous virtuosi as Franz Liszt, Martha Argerich, and Vladimir Horowitz but also Ervin Nyiregyhazi ("the skid row pianist"), the eccentric Vladimir de Pachmann, and Liberace."--Résumé de l'éditeur

In Maremma : life and a house in southern Tuscany by David Leavitt ( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1997 David Leavitt and Mark Mitchell bought a house in southern Tuscany: not a villa but a dilapidated farmhouse dating from the late 1950's and abandoned for more than twenty years. In Maremma recounts their restoration of the house, as well as the gradual process by which two Americans became initiated into a part of Italy - and a part of Italian life - that foreigners rarely see."--BOOK JACKET
Vladimir de Pachmann : a piano virtuoso's life and art by Mark Mitchell ( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Beginning with Pachmann's childhood in Odessa, Mitchell follows the process by which the youngest of thirteen children evolved into one of the finest - and most colorful - artists in the history of the piano, one who was able to fill London's Albert Hall for a recital. Particular emphasis is placed on the two principal relationships of Pachmann's life: with the pianist Maggie Okey, to whom he was married for a decade, and with Francesco Pallottelli, the waiter-turned-impresario under whose influence he eventually settled in Fascist-era Italy."--BOOK JACKET
