Farewell, My Youth

£19.99

Product description

Farewell, My Youth by Arnold Bax
Published 1943
First Edition

Farewell, My Youth is Arnold Bax's autobiography, published in 1943 when the composer was sixty. The text concentrates on events in British music prior to 1914 in which Bax describes his childhood, his time at the Royal Academy of Music, his meeting with Elgar (1901) and his discovery of the poetry of Yeats. His lifelong commitment to Ireland exemplified one of many spiritual conflicts that at once inspired and tormented him, and was undoubtedly sublimated in some of his most powerful music. Arnold Bax also met Sibelius, Debussy, D'Indy and Schonberg, while his vivid vignettes of Beecham and British music of the period are minor classics of observation.
