Présentation de l'éditeur

Adolf Busch (1891-1952) was not only an all-round musician; he was also a moral beacon in troubled times. Now remembered as the first violin of the Busch String Quartet, which he founded in 1912, he was the greatest quartet-player of the last century and also the busiest solo violinist of the inter-War years, regularly performing the great concertos with such conductors as Toscanini, Walter, Furtwängler, Boult, Barbirolli and many others. He was, moreover, an outstanding composer whose works enjoyed performances both at home in Germany and further afield. But at the peak of his popularity his profound sense of decency and his simple human dignity brought about a dramatic reversal in his fortunes. His courageous decision to boycott his native country from April 1933 - despite Hitler's efforts to persuade 'our German violinist' to return - drastically reduced his income and damaged his career as soloist and composer. In 1938, because of Mussolini's race laws, he imposed a similar boycott on Italy, where he had been one of the most popular of classical performers. The following year he emigrated with his quartet colleagues to the United States, where he was not fully appreciated, although he had many successes with his chamber orchestra and founded the Marlboro summer school. This biography, based on more than thirty years' research, documents Busch's life, examining his exemplary behaviour in the context of the tumultuous period in which he lived. 'Adolf is a saint', declared Arturo Toscanini. And Sir Ernest Gombrich said of Busch: 'He was exactly as he played - there was not a false tone in him'. Two volume set including two CDs.

Tully Potter est une des meilleures plumes du Royaume-Uni , bien connu des lecteurs du Gramophone ou de l'International Record Revieuw. Adolf Busch était un grand violoniste de l'entre-deux-guerres,premier violon du Quatour Busch bien connu des mélomanes avertis, et encore fort apprécié aujourd'hui bien qu'il ait cessé ses activités vers 1950 .
J'espère donc bien que le livre sera bientôt disponible- dans les publications Anglaises,il paraît en instance de parution.

HASH(0x984a95dc) étoiles sur 5 A Knighthood to Tully Potter for his Bio of Golden Age Violinist Adolf Busch 16 novembre 2010
Par Laurence Vittes - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a book of extreme importance. It brings to the fore, in great detail and with a sharp writing style, the life and times of one of Germany's greatest musicians, whose direct lineage to Brahms validated his simple elegant virtuoso's style, always playing as if this were the most important thing in his life, totally in the context of his own, unalterable identity as a musician. Every library needs this; every music lover needs to see this, and at least glance through its pages. Tully Potter has been standing up for classical music since he was knee-high to a violin, and deserves a knighthood for this, although he might decline, and a place in our own Classical Music Hall of Fame.

HASH(0x97f87e10) étoiles sur 5 An Exemplary Life and Musical History of the Times 7 mars 2011
Par Edgar Self - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Long awaited, this biography of violinist, composer, quartet and trio leader, teacher, and conductor Adolf Busch (1891-1952), co-founder of the Marlboro School of Music, is a history of the violin, of concerts and chamber-music in the first half of the 20th century. The texts, research notes, copious illustrations, and appendices detail virtually every concert and associate of Busch's life with full descriptions of his musical and personal relations with Reger, Busoni, Tovey, Roentgens and hundreds of others, including those unsympathetic to him such as Furtwaengler, Sibelius, Edwin Fischer, and Elly Ney, for musical or political reasons. Busch's early immigration from Germany and his part in creating the Lucerne Festival and Palestine Symphony Orchestra, precursor of the Israel Philharmonic, before settling in the U.S. and co-founding the Marlboro School of Music with his son-in-law Rudolf Serkin, are fully chronicled, as are those of his brothers, conductor-pianist Fritz Busch and cellist Herman Busch.

Adolf Busch was a stalwart of the German school of violin inherited from Joseph Joachim, standing apart from the Leopold Auer and other schools. The violinists he is most often compared with are Joachim, Bronislaw Huberman, and Joseph Szigeti.

Mr. Potter has done service equal to Henry-Louis de la Grange's for Mahler. His book, well worth the price, is in two volumes, 1400 pp., with hundreds of photographs, many previously unknown. The explanatory notes and identification of those mentioned in the text are exemplary.
