Mezzotints in Modern Music

£24.99

Product description

The death of Johannes Brahms in 1897 removed from the sparsely settled land of music the last of the immortals; the one whom Billow justly ranked with Bach and Beethoven; the one upon whom Schumann lavished both praise and prophecy. Not by any wrench of the imagination can we conjure the name of Antonin Dvorak, despite his delightful gift of saying nai've and Slavic things; not by any excess of sentiment can we dower Italy's grand old man Verdi with the title, nor yet France's favorite son, Saint-Saens; not any one nor all of these three varying talents can be compared to the great, virile man who died in Vienna, the city of his preference but not of his birth.

When the printed list of Brahms' achievements in song, sonata, symphony and choral works of vast proportions is placed before you, amazement at the slow, patient, extraordinary fertility and versatility of the man seizes upon you. Signed by previous owner Dust Jacket folded inside book. Some foxing on end pages
