Herman Klein and "The Gramophone"
William R. Moran (editor)
Hard Cover, 9" x 11", 620 pp w/dust jacket (List $55)
Herman Klein was intimately involved in the musical scene in London. From 1924 until his death in 1934, he contributed a monthly essay to The Gramophone magazine, commenting on the current opera seasons at Covent Garden and reviewing the latest performances, recordings and books. This book is a reprint of his essays, plus other writings including his famous "The Bel Canto." It is of the highest importance to collectors of vocal recordings and students of the art of singing. "I can only state that I have found this book to be one to cherish, and its author a well-nigh uniquely perceptive observer of singers and singing." - Henry Pleasants, Opera Quarterly
