Verdi : a biography by Mary Jane Phillips-Matz( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,581 libraries worldwide
Written with the full collaboration of the Verdi family and drawing on a wide range of sources, this is an authoritative re-examination of a long, vigorous, and varied life. The author captures Verdi's tremendous energy, creativity, and philanthropy, and offers fresh insights into the complexities involved in the composition and production of his operas. She also explores his possessive love for his home region and his tireless devotion to his farmlands, and examines Verdi's professional and personal relationships, particularly with Giuseppina Strepponi, his mistress and later wife. The first major biography of Verdi for a generation, this is a fitting study of a great composer and a great patriot of Italian nationalism
Puccini : a biography by Mary Jane Phillips-Matz( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,013 libraries worldwide
"Descended from four generations of distinguished composers and organists, Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) was driven by family tradition and an ambitious mother to pursue a career that brought him worldwide recognition as the greatest composer of Italian opera after Giuseppe Verdi. But behind the brilliant creator of such lasting works as La Boheme, Tosca, Madama Butterfly, La Fanciulla del West, La Rondine, and Turandot, there was a person racked with indecision, self-doubt, bouts of depression, and private misfortunes."
