Allegri, Renzo & Roberto
Callas By Callas Secret Writings of la Maria
Memorabilia > Books
Condition: NM
Cover Condition: EX+
Label: Universe
Reference Number: 98-14769
Country: Spain
Date: 1998

Hardcover book is like new! Very light scuffing to dust jacket. ISBN# 0-7893-0135-0

This book comes from the private collection of the legendary jazz clarinetist and Jazz Hall of Fame inductee, Kenny Davern. While Kenny was best known as a jazz musician who worked with everyone from Jack Teagarden to Steve Lacy, he attributes David Weber, principal solo clarinetist with the New York City Ballet Orchestra as his most influential teacher. He and I would listen to mostly classical music when we visited and discussed the differences in interpretations by various conductors. Kenny's knowledge of classical music was encyclopaedic, particularly of the work of conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler whose works lined the walls of his music room.

Deutsch, Otto Erich
Mozart Documentary Biography

Condition: EX
Cover Condition: EX/EX-
Label: Stanford University Press
Country: US
Date: 1974

Blue cloth cover has very light soiling/discoloration. Corners are very slightly blunted. Binding is cracked in several places but is secure. MHS Library stamp on outer edge of pages. Pages are white and crisp! Dust jacket has light wear around the edges, few spots, light scuffing, small tears up to 1/2 inch in top edge. Translated from original German by Eric Blom, Peter Branscombe, and Jeremy Noble. ISBN# 0-8047-0233-0

This book comes from the private collection of the legendary jazz clarinetist and Jazz Hall of Fame inductee, Kenny Davern. While Kenny was best known as a jazz musician who worked with everyone from Jack Teagarden to Steve Lacy, he attributes David Weber, principal solo clarinetist with the New York City Ballet Orchestra as his most influential teacher. He and I would listen to mostly classical music when we visited and discussed the differences in interpretations by various conductors. Kenny's knowledge of classical music was encyclopaedic, particularly of the work of conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler whose works lined the walls of his music room.

Some scuffing, slight discoloration of cover. Corners are sharp. Gloss is outstanding! Binding is cracked in several places, but is completely secure. Pages are white and crisp with sharp corners. Beautiful copy! Printing is not noted; appears to be the first English language edition. ISBN# 0-87666-620-9

This book comes from the private collection of the legendary jazz clarinetist and Jazz Hall of Fame inductee, Kenny Davern. While Kenny was best known as a jazz musician who worked with everyone from Jack Teagarden to Steve Lacy, he attributes David Weber, principal solo clarinetist with the New York City Ballet Orchestra as his most influential teacher. He and I would listen to mostly classical music when we visited and discussed the differences in interpretations by various conductors. Kenny's knowledge of classical music was encyclopaedic, particularly of the work of conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler whose works lined the walls of his music room.
