Harold Charles Schonberg was an American music critic and journalist, most notably for The New York Times

I found this book when I had asked my dad for an informational book, and seeing how the only informational books (or any books, for that matter) that we have in the house are either about therapy or music, I went with the music one. It turned out to be a very interesting and refreshing read. Harold Charles Schonberg was an American music critic and journalist, most notably for The New York Times. He was the first music critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism (1971). He was the author of a number of books on musical subjects, and also one on chess.

His lively and insightful writing about music and musicians has not been duplicated or replaced by anyone.

Harold Charles Schonberg (November 29, 1915 – July 26, 2003) was an American music critic and journalist, most notably for The New York Times. In 1971, he became the first music critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism. He also wrote a number of books on music, and one on chess.

This use of scordatura allowed Paganini to write a part that had the freedom of D major – a comfortable and versatile key on a violin. The greater tension in the strings, combined with a higher proportion of notes played on open strings, has the effect of making the violin sing more clearly than its orchestral accompaniment. Far from putting him off, the mishap inspired the virtuoso to write his Moses Fantasy, based on Rossini's opera Mosè in Egitto, and written exclusively for the G string, This performance direction has struck fear into the hearts of violinists ever since.

Offers profiles of singers, musicians, and conductors, including Jenny Lind, Enrico Caruso, Vladimir Horowitz, and Leonard Bernstein

We miss Harold Schonberg to this day. His lively and insightful writing about music and musicians has not been duplicated or replaced by anyone. That isn't to say there are not good writers on music, there certainly are, but none fill that niche for the general reader that Schonberg filled. It was impossible to read an article by him and not come away with something new to think about or some wonderful anecdote to share.

Fortunately, his book "The Great Pianists" is still in print and should be read by every music lover regardless if they can play the keyboards or not. Why this book is out of print is beyond me. He does pretty much what he did with "The Great Pianists", he provides articles on great virtuosi, their times, and the other artists of their day. This book is always charming, the writing is delightful, and the articles provide the patented Schonbergian light-touch-teaching. You would have to be a widely read almost beyond understanding to not pick up anything new in this book.

You will learn about great violinists, singers, and even the very greatest pianists. There are lots of pictures and drawings to help you put faces to the names. If for nothing else, by reading this book carefully you will always have some interesting story to share at a dinner after a concert or at a party with your musical friends.

Since you can pick up used copies of this book so cheaply, I urge you to get a copy and enjoy it. You will get more from it than most other books and more than from anything on TV.
