Married to the Amadeus - Life with a String Quartet (Paperback): Muriel Nissel Married to the Amadeus - Life with a String Quartet (Paperback)
Muriel Nissel
R320 Discovery Miles 3 200 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

The Amadeus Quartet, which was active from 1948 until 1987 when its viola player Peter Schidlof died, is probably the most famous and distinguished string quartet of the 20th century. It played to a wide variety of audiences on innumerable occasions in all the major countries of the world, and produced a galaxy of recordings, many of which are still available. The intensity of its music-making was breathtaking. Muriel Nissel, the author of Married to the Amadeus, is the wife of Siegmund Nissel, the second violinist. Her book tells the extraordinary and moving story of the Quartet, with its many triumphs and its periodic setbacks and traumas, from the inside for the forty years from its inception during the time after the Second World War up to the 1980s. She reveals how it moulded the lives of the four players and their wives and families in unexpected ways, and how they all became inextricably involved in this unique joint enterprise. The fashion in which work and family life interacted was crucial to the Quartet's survival.She returned to her professional life as a statistician when the children went to school and describes how difficult it was in the 1960s for a married woman with children to achieve equal status with men at work; and she tells of the problems she also had to face at home finding satisfactory ways of caring for her family. Remarkably, the four members of the Quartet remained unchanged throughout. They each of them had exceptional qualities. Norbert Brainin, the first violin, Siegmund Nissel and Peter Schidlof, all refugees from Vienna, had first met in internment camps in Britain in 1940. Martin Lovett, the cellist, joined them not long after the war, at a moment when the musical climate was sympathetic to chamber music and the record industry was booming. They never looked back. Nobody who has read Muriel Nissel's absorbing book will ever be able to listen to a string quartet again without being aware of the immense commitment such a group demands of the players and of their families too, and of the longstanding emotional, aesthetic and organizational complexities it entails.

Aldo Parisot, The Cellist - The Importance of the Circle (Hardcover): Susan Hawkshaw Aldo Parisot, The Cellist - The Importance of the Circle (Hardcover)
Susan Hawkshaw
R952 Discovery Miles 9 520 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

This book presents the story of renowned cellist Aldo Parisot, who started his career in his native Brazil and then emigrated to the U.S., establishing himself as a major soloist worldwide. His colleague and friend Janos Starker has described Mr. Parisot as "a top-notch performer" and "the best cello teacher of his time." Parisot expanded the cello repertoire by commissioning contemporary composers, including the Brazilian Heitor Villa-Lobos, as well as numerous American composers. He has, in addition, discovered and revived older music for the instrument. He has been responsible, as in the case of the Parisonatina by Donald Martino, so named in honor of Parisot, for shaping the music together with the composer. The book also considers his groundbreaking work with the cello ensemble at Yale and at festivals around the globe. Parisot's life is interesting not only as the story of an extraordinary performer but also as a human story about overcoming hardship. His personality is colorful, and he is a compelling visual artist as well as an exciting musician. SUSAN HAWKSHAW is on the faculty at Albertus Magnus College and at the University of New Haven, both in New Haven, CT.
