Talking About Symphonies - Antony Hopkins

Heinemann, 1961, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled along edges, some small nicks and chips with slight loss. Top edges of text block dusty. Text bright and tight.

ANTONY HOPKINS is well-known to millions of BBC listeners as a delightfully informal lecturer on music. He has here gathered together his talks on eight of the greatest symphonies, from Hadyn to Stravinsky, and has expanded them so that they now form a comprehensive analysis of a kind that time does not allow in a broadcast. Beethoven gets pride of place, with two symphonies (Nos. 3 and 7 rather than the more hackneyed No. 5), and other composers with a symphony each are Haydn, Mozart, Berlioz, Brahms, Sibelius and Stravinsky. There are nearly 200 music illustrations, as well as some original and helpful diagrams. 157pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
