In this biography, Robert Walker skilfully blends the fascinating story of Rachmaninoff's life with the historical background of his times. The author shows, too, how outside influences- the 1905 and 1917 revolutions, the Great War, the Wall Street Crash and the Great Depression- very much affected Rachmaninoff as an artist. As well as the use of contemporary accounts, letters and reminiscences, the author has obtained recollections first-hand from distinguished musicians who knew the composer initmately and worked closely with him. The Book is illustrated throughout with photographs of the time, which are as fascinating as the text.

Arguably the greatest of all piano virtuosi, Liszt was one of the few composers of his day who had the technique to perform his own compositions. A child prodigy pianist who could read music before he could recite the alphabet, Franz Liszt is one of the most outrageously gifted and most controversial figures in classical music. Unconventional in both his approach to composing and his personal life, he had a reputation for courting hostility and riding rough-shod over other people's feelings, particularly those of his musical peers. This lavishly illustrated book chronicles Liszt's life and times with the help of many rare photographs and contemporary prints. With numerous quotations from the people who knew him best, extracts from personal letters and diaries, this remarkable book gives an intimate picture of the composer's private life, and also investigates the complex religious and emotional forces which inspired his music.

Ir has been said that no music amplifies the french ideals of precision and good taste better than the work of Maurice Ravel, yet his background could scarecly have been more cosmopolitan. The son of a Swiss father and a Basque mother, he was born near St. Jean de Luz in 1875; he died in Paris at the age of sixty-two. His primary inspiration, and in consequence the character of his best music, came from art and life. He was exceptionally sensitive to the new current of thought and the aesthetic changes in the Arts following the First World War. Indeed, the music of Ravel is an accuarate reflection of the man himself. This lavishly illustrated book which sets the work and achievements of Ravel in the context of the events of his time, will appeal to the general music lover and also to the serious student.

Schubert died at the age of thirty-one, in obscurity, his genius unrecognised except by a few friends. Today he is acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of all times. His nine symphonies include what is probably the most famous of all symphonies - The Unfinished- and his chamber music, the best loved of all quintets - The Trout. Perhaps his most impressive accomplishment was the composition of over six hundred exquisite songs, including the Schöne Mullerin and Winterreise song cycles, which never cease to delight audiences. In this new biography, the author traces the life and times of Schubert, the development of his music and the political and social climate of Vienne in the years following the Congress of 1814. Documentation of the period, Schubert's own letters and the recollections of his friends help bring Schubert's time alive. The text is completed with a number of facsimile reproductions of Schubert's manuscripts and published editions.
