Douglas Fox: A Chronicle

£14.99

Product description

An account of the life of Douglas Fox is the account of the exciting development of a young musician of quite exceptional talent and promise, and of the subsequent triumph of a man of indomitable courage over cruel tragedy. The boy who held the first music scholarship offered at Clifton College, and who was later elected to organ scholarships at the Royal College of Music and at Keble College, Oxford, was clearly destined for a brilliant career. In his early years he won many honours and gained the admiration and friendship of his contemporaries who include Herbert Howells and Walter Stanton. The Great War however brought tragedy when he was seriously wounded in August 1917 resulting in the loss of his right arm above the elbow. Despite the physical handicap, he still built up a sizable repertoire for organ and piano recitals and gave many memorable performances of the Ravel concerto for the left hand.
An inspirational biography from Winifred Fox.
Privately published in 1976. The cover shows some signs of shelf wear. There is minor sunning and a small patch of foxing to the edges. In generally good condition.
