The World's Great Men of Music: Story-Lives of Master Musicians by Harriette Brower (1869 - 1928).


These stories are gathered from many sources including biographies, letters, journals and musical history. The life story of 25 of the most celebrated musicians is presented. The author has aimed to make the story-sketches interesting to young people in hopes that they may prove valuable to musical readers of all ages. Students of piano, violin or other instruments need to know how the great composers lived their lives. In every musical career described in this book, from the old masters represented by Bach and Beethoven to the musical prophets of our own day, there is a wealth of inspiration and practical guidance for the artist in any field. Through their struggles, sorrows and triumphs, divine melody and harmony came into being, which will bless the world for all time to come. ( Author)

I'll MC this for you.

Too many genres! Genres are indicative of where in a library or bookstore the work would be located; it's not a list of everything that relates to it. :) Two, or at very most 3, genres work for most books. I'm knocking it down to Non-fiction/Biography & Autobiography and Non-fiction/Music (although since this isn't about the music itself, that's a debatable genre). ;)

Hi,

Thank you for the MC.

I didn't know about the genres, so that will help me on future projects to know better which ones to pick and how many to pick. I wondered about that with some of the other solos that I had done and I couldn't find any info on how many to select. I think the ones that you mentioned are the most appropriate. I do feel that the Non-fiction/Music would be best second choice since that is the way many people will search online for a book like this.

Thanks again for the information, and the MC. It should be a fun project.

I'll be happy to DPL if you are all right with my PLing be done on Sundays. (Many of my PLing projects seem to be on hold for the holidays, so the readers might start up again soon. Otherwise, I'd put this close to the top of my list.) If you and TriciaG can live with this, I'm on board. And don't worry about saying 'no.'

Thank you KevinS. That works fine for me. I often get finished with my solos before the time I allocate. It kinds of depends on how interesting the subject matter is. I'm doing this book since my wife was a concert pianist (retired now) and she said she would have loved to be able to read a book like this when she was in college. So it may be a chapter at a time, or a number each week. But there is no hurry, and thank you for agreeing to DPL.

Hi,

I just noticed you shortened the file name. Thanks for doing that so it was not so unwieldy.

Oh, yeah, I did that. You're free to do that yourself, actually. And if you want to change up that first part a bit more, feel free. 8-)

Thank you.

I changed your title for section 0. It's Foreword, like a "word at the fore" rather than Forward, as in "the direction of your feet". :P
