The Devil's Music Master

£19.99

Product description

Quarter bound boards in red paper with a black cloth spine. Whole book almost as new. Jacket clean with some slight shelf wear crease to the edges. Illustrated with b&w plates. Wilhelm Furtwaengler was one of the most the dominant figures in Central European music between the wars, enjoying spells as conductor of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics and the Berlin Opera House. However, his decision to live and work in Nazi Germany has clouded his achievement, and he was branded a collaborator, despite the fact that he helped hundreds of people to flee the regime. This new biography aims to balance the account, and in the light of the renewed popularity of Furtwaengler's recordings, examines his musical legacy and his influence on many of today's leading conductors.
