The cello player by Michael Krüger( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in 9 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The narrator of this tale of love and loss is a middle-aged German composer who writes serious avant-garde music, but makes a living writing theme music for television. When Judit, an ambitious young cello player from Budapest (whose mother was once the composer's lover and who may or may not be his daughter), shows up on his doorstep, he agrees to take her in while she studies at the conservatory in Munich. Judit's presence evokes memories of a far different time for the composer, when life was about art and his biggest concern was finding a room for an afternoon tryst. When our protagonists set out for the composer's house in southern France, where he will finish his opera and she will master her instrument, it gradually becomes clear that this young woman is playing more than the cello"--Publisher's description

Candida Höfer : a monograph by Candida Höfer( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and German and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Candida Hofer's relationship to architecture is fully in keeping with the New Objectivity tradition. Her photographs of public spaces are almost sober and ascetic in feel - the specific atmosphere is disturbed by neither visitors nor users, especially as she forgoes any spectacular staging of the locations. The emptiness is imbued with substance by a subtle attention to color, and the prevailing silence thus instilled with a metaphysical quality that gives voice to the objects - over and above the eloquence of the furnishings or the pathos of the architecture
