Description:

Item Description: Records Past Publishing, (White Rock, BC, Canada), 2013. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: N/J. Limiter Edition. 8*" x 11" Tall (xiv), 819 pp. Hard Covers, Burgundy Buckram Library Binding; Condition: Very Good . ISBN 978-0-9696098-7--2 This important volume contains information relating to approximately 30,000 original issues and re-issues of recordings by viola players in formats including wax cylinders; 78rpm, radio transcription, and long-play discs; open-reel, eight-track, cassette, and digital compact cassette tapes; VHS tape cassette, laser disc, and DVD video formats; and CDs. Included is an index of more than 2,000 violists, linking specific performers to the list of compositions which make up the main body of information. The format uses a generous 8½" x 11" page size, with the text running to 819 pages of easily readable four-column text, preceded by a fourteen-page introduction. The book is finished in an attractive and durable burgundy buckram, hardcover library binding. A product of 30 years of research dedicated to the art of the viola on record. No music reference library will be complete without this valuable guide, which takes its place alongside Franz Zeyringer's Litertur für Viola as one of the most important books documenting the history of the viola. Edward Strenkowski's previous experience in discography includes his role as publisher of James Creighton's ground-breaking survey of the violin on records, Discopædia of the Violin 2nd ed. This book was reviewed in: Journal of the American Viola Society (Volume 30 Number 1). "As befits the importance of this reference work, it comes with a beautiful and durable hardcover library binding that will keep the pages free from significant wear after many years of searches, which is fortunate because even the casual collector will want to spend hours looking through this book. Many surprises and lost treasures await: Emanuel Vardi's earliest solo recordings on Royale 78s (including his transcendently beautiful Rolla Sonata in E-flat); William Primrose's CD of Suzuki Viola School selections (one of his last recordings, available only in Japan) Maurice Vieux's recording of Golestan's Arioso et allegro de concert (from May 1933, a rare solo recording by the French Master); and a surprising number of 78 rpm discs by Watson Forbes, the tireless Scots violist who, after Tertis and Primrose, was the most recorded player of the 78 era. There are many unusual recordings to be found among later issues as well, right up to the book's cut off date of year 2000" David Hermann is a violist in the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. He has been collecting viola recordings for over forty years, and discs from his collection have been used in CD releases by Pearl, Biddulph, Music & Arts, Lys, Naxos, Doremi and Cembal d'amour. His project Lionel Tartis: The Complete Vocalion Recordings was awarded Best Compilation of the Year 2008 by Classical Recodings Quaterly magazine. Bookseller Inventory # 000489.
