Sophia Parnok : the life and work of Russia's Sappho by Diana Lewis Burgin( )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and Russian and held by 1,732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The weather in Moscow is good, there's no cholera, there's also no lesbian love ... Brrr! Remembering those persons of whom you write me makes me nauseous as if I'd eaten a rotten sardine. Moscow doesn't have them--and that's marvellous."--Anton Chekhov, writing to his publisher in 1895. Chekhov's barbed comment suggests the climate in which Sophia Parnok was writing, and is an added testament to to the strength and confidence with which she pursued both her personal and artistic life. Author of five volumes of poetry, and lover of Marina Tsvetaeva, Sophia Parnok was the only openly lesb

One hot spring, the devil arrives in Moscow, Accompanied by a retinue that includes a beautiful naked witch and an immense talking black cat with a fondness of chess and vodka. The visitors quickly wreak havoc in a city that refuses to believe in either God or Satan. But they also bring peace to two unhappy Muscovites: one is the master, a writer pilloried for daring to write a novel about Christ and Pontius Pilate; the other is Margarita, who loves the Master so deeply that she is willing to go to hell for him. What ensues is a novel of inexhaustible energy, humor, and philosophical depth, a work whose nuances emerge for the first time in Diana Burgin's and Katherine Tiernan O'Connor's splendid English version

Performing life : the story of Ruth Posselt, American violinist by Diana Lewis Burgin( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This] is a richly illustrated biography of the internationally renowned violinist Ruth Posselt (1911–2007), tracing her career from her debut as a child prodigy at New York's Carnegie Hall in 1923 to her last appearances in the late seventies. This first-ever biography details Posselt's struggles with the widespread gender bias against female violinists as well as the lesser-known prejudice of American audiences and managers against American-born virtuosos. But Performing Life focuses on Posselt's achievements, especially her pioneering work in premiering and popularizing important works for the violin by twentieth-century composers such as E. B. Hill, Walter Piston, Samuel Barber, Paul Hindemith, Bohuslav Martinu, Aaron Copland, Vladimir Dukelsky (Vernon Duke), and others. Special attention is also given to Posselt's decades-long record of performances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Serge Koussevitzky and Charles Munch, as well as her musical partnership and marriage with Richard Burgin, concertmaster and associate conductor of the BSO for almost half a century. Drawing from written and oral narratives, published and unpublished sources, personal reminiscences, conversations, and anecdotes, Diana Lewis Burgin, Posselt’s daughter, tells this exhilarating story of a trail-blazing female musician, through which an imagined mother-daughter dialogue murmurs continuously in the background. --Publisher
