No current Talk conversations about this book.
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0838638449, Hardcover)Volume 3 covers a time span that preeminently represents the period in the composer's life known as "The Years of International Fame" (1850-56). Confirmed as the major figure on the operatic scene, and freed from the more onerous duties of his official position, Meyerbeer was able to enjoy his most remarkable period of stability and renown, as the detailed and absorbing diary entries reveal. These years saw the composing, rehearsing, and staging of L'Etoile du Nord (1854), and his personal supervision of major productions in London, Dresden, Stuttgart, and Vienna.
