Paul Hindemith : the man behind the music : a biography by Geoffrey Skelton( Book )

19 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Hindemith is one of the dominant musical figures of the 20th century. A vastly prolific composer, his works ranging from little pieces for children up to operas of imposing proportions, he was also a practicing musician, both as violist and as orchestral conductor, an influential teacher in both Europe and America, and a writer whose books, whether educational or literary, are among the most revealing written on the subject of music. It is possible, perhaps, to be all these things without being of much interest as a human being -- possible, but not very likely. The purpose of this book is to portray the human being, and in setting that as my aim I am conscious that I am defying the wish of Paul Hindemith himself. He was more than reticent about his private life: he was downright secretive. What has become evident to me through a study of all sources is the extent to which Hindemith's being was dominated and regulated by music. He lived and breathed music as naturally and involuntarily as all of us breathe air. - Introduction

Man in the Holocene : a story by Max Frisch( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A stunning tour de force, Man in the Holocene constructs a powerful vision of our place in the world by combining the banality of an aging man's lonely inner life and the objective facts he finds in the books of his isolated home. As a rainstorm rages outside, Max Frisch's protagonist, Geiser, watches the mountain landscape crumble beneath landslides and flooding, and speculates that the town will be wiped out by the collapse of a section of the mountain. Seeking refuge from the storm in town, he makes his way through a difficult and dangerous mountain pass, only to abandon his original plan and return home. A compelling meditation by one of Frisch's most original characters, Man in the Holocene charts Geiser's desperate attempt to find his place in history and in the confusing and fragile world outside his window
