This excellent book is the only available biography in English of this underrated composer. The author brings to light many heretofore little known tidbits about Bruch's life and provides detailed analyses of the great majority of his most significant works. I strongly recommend it for anyone who loves classical music, especially for those who want to expand their knowledge beyond that of "the three B's". ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807612049, Hardcover)

This is the paperback edition of the hardback version originally published by Gollancz in 1988. It also has the author's lengthy afterword to update and revise the original version, a revised bibliography and workslist, a list of new editions of Bruch's music, and a new select discography. This book remains the only biography in any language of the composer Max Bruch (1838-1920), whose first violin concerto has been consistently popular with the concert-going and listening public since 1868. The book explores all the composer's 100 published works, operas, oratorios, orchestral, instrumental and chamber music. It traces the long life and explores the complex character of a man who, until now, has been a little more than a well known name to music lovers.
