The Loves of Great Composers by Gustav Kobbe (1857 - 1918).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-loves-of-great-composers-by-gustav-kobbe/


Gustav Kobbe was a German/US music critic who worked at the time of Liszt and Wagner in particular, and was clearly in the Wagnerian rather than the Brahms camp. His unusual style of writing and his strongly romantic take on the loves of these seven composers makes for entertaining listening, even though his facts and opinions may differ from more academic writers and biographers of these composers. Each composer occupies a section or chapter, with Wagner getting the fuller account in terms of length. In fact Gustav Kobbe claims he knew Liszt and Wagner as well as Cosima Wagner - so this must be quite original and authoritative. The 19C period and its atmosphere is conveyed by Kobbe's unusual sentence construction and reads more like story telling rather than a written work. ( Peter Thomlinson)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/18138/18138-h/18138-h.htm
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

You need to read the sticky at the top of this forum and fill in a template and post it . It looks a bit like you may have started this and then forgotten to post the filled in template . If you still have the completed template you could edit the first post and copy and post the template -

You've only posted the code - you need to post the whole template - we don't store the template, there's no way we can recreate it.
Look at the other first post in this forum, yours should look the same except fot the MW details which your MC will add.

Anne

just copy all the template you made and edit the first post to add it

It should look similar to your solo viewtopic.php?f=16&t=65793

Hope its all filled in correctly. (Just like taking an exam at school ... wink)

It doesn't look like there is a problem to me . Try again please ? Maybe there was an ether glitch. You have used the MW before haven't you ?
