Franz Liszt, Volume 1: The Virtuoso Years: 1811-1847

Alan Walker

Franz Liszt, Volume 1: The Virtuoso Years: 1811-1847 by Alan WalkerFranz Liszt--child prodigy, virtuoso pianist, co-founder with Chopin and Schumann of the Romantic movement in music--has been the subject of literally hundreds of biographies, but it is only in the last few decades that the importance of Liszt the composer, as opposed to Liszt the Romantic hero, has been recognized. This new perspective has created the need for a fresh, full-scale approach, biographical and critical, to the evaluation of the man and his music.

For more than ten years Alan Walker, a leading authority on nineteenth-century music and the author of important studies of Chopin and...

Alan Young

In 1960, four young men went into a Chicago recording studio and revolutionized the sound of African American gospel music.

The Pilgrim Jubilees is their story, told in their words. From their beginnings in rural Houston, Mississippi, through the good times and the hard times of more than half a century traveling the "gospel highway" they have played a pivotal role in shaping an entire musical genre....
