Comment: As pictured, Fast Print Publishing, 2009. The spine is uncreased but the book is slightly cocked; cover has creases and scuffs; pages are clean and unmarked internally but please note, there is some shelf wear to the closed edges, some light creasing and the corners are slightly dog-eared. No inscriptions, good reading copy.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Basset horn on 24 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
A well written, informative, honest and humorous account of an orchestral musician's life in Britain from the 1930s to the 1980s. If you are interested in music, musicians and what makes the two work together, then this is a recommended book. There are accounts of rehearsals, concerts, touring, of fellow players and repertoire, some of which seems to have become lost to us today. This book is also a commentary on musical society and makes perceptive comments, for example:

Every member of an orchestra, whether the leader, principal horn, or the violinist at the back of the second violin section has to give up some of her or his individuality, but some have to do so much more than others. String players have to give up most: they are always playing the same notes as a number of other players. From time to time I believe every one of them will experience a real feeling of frustration. Nearly all of them at some time will have had dreams of becoming a soloist or of playing in a string quartet, or at least in a chamber orchestra. (P.179)

Recommended by a former pupil.
