Incomplete History of The Art of the Funerary Violin
Rohan Kriwaczek (au)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
During the Reformation a new musical form developed to replace Catholic funerary ritual. A solo violinist became central to the conduct of the Protestant funeral. Despite its enormous influence on classical music generally and on the Romantic Movement in particular, this music has almost entirely vanished. In a series of ‘funerary purges’, the violinists were driven into silence or clandestine activity. This is a music that has haunted Europe’s collective unconscious for more than a century. This book reveals its incredible history -- by remembering the Guild we realize afresh what our music once was, and what it might be once gain. “A deeply evocative and important history, elegiacally written and impressively wrought’. Includes musical notation for many solos.
