Facing the Music: An Irreverent Close-Up of the Real Concert World

Title Facing the Music: An Irreverent Close-Up of the Real Concert World
Author Henri Temianka
Call Number ML418.T44 A3 1973  
Location 3rd Floor Music
Rating Highly Recommended
Book Review It's incredible that a violin virtuoso as talented and well-known as Temianka could also have such a natural ability for writing thoughtful, intriguing, and unexpected prose. This book brings in anecdotes both big and small, fascinating and hilarious, about Temianka's life as a concert and chamber musician. You might not think the story of early-mid 20th century concert musicians would be such an adventure, but Facing the Music delivers 100% and immediately gives the reader a glimpse into the raw creativity and humility of a man building a career during a century of such chaos and innovation.
