Franz Liszt by Jeremy Siepmann( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
The life of Franz Liszt was as daring and spectacular as his music. Famed throughout Europe as the greatest pianist of the nineteenth century, he was one of the most original and prophetic composers who ever lived. Beautiful in youth, glowering in age, his high-profile love affairs were the talk of the town wherever he went and his generosity to young musicians was legendary. In this account of his epic life, actors' readings combine with plentiful musical excerpts to paint a living portrait of a highly complex man. The greatest surprise in this audio-biography of Franz Liszt is that, despite his reputation as a lion of the keyboard and one of the hugely popular superstars of his era, he was, in fact, a steady personality. As Jeremy Siepmann shows, for all Liszt's pyrotechnics on the keyboard, and itinerant life, he did not succumb uninhibitedly to the temptations of his environment. There existed a deeply reflective strain within him, which is why and how he eventually transformed his public persona from the fabulous virtuoso to Abbe Liszt - as can be experienced in the readings from his letters and memories by Neville Jason
The life and work of Marcel Proust by Neville Jason( Sound Recording )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Born in 1871, Marcel Proust was intent on becoming a writer from an early age. For much of his youth, Proust led the life of a man-about-town, frequenting fashionable Paris drawing rooms and literary salons, which would form the background of a number of his early stories and sketches. Remembrance of Things Past, the major French literary statement of the twentieth century, looks back at the old social order while noting the rise of a different way of life. It is extraordinary not only for its length, but for the remarkable observations of the aspirations, the foibles and the emotions of life. This new biography is written and read by Neville Jason who, through his recordings for Naxos AudioBooks, has become the voice of Proust for a generation
