What violin do you play
"... and do you play the violin too?"
This question accompanied the son of the famous violinist Carl Flesch (1873-1944) for a lifetime. With this sentence he begins his life story, which is at the same time the story of his father and the history of musical life in a time of upheaval and great darkness. An incredibly captivating excerpt from the musical and cultural history of our century.
A lively kaleidoscope emerges in front of the reader's eyes, into which excerpts from letters from famous contemporaries, quotes from diary entries, character descriptions by famous musicians, anecdotes they have experienced themselves or passed down in the family, and the author's often idiosyncratic views are woven into it.
The valuable, mostly previously unpublished authentic material is not only fascinating for those interested in music, but also of contemporary historical interest: Furtwängler's behavior in the Third Reich, Arthur Schnabel's "Creed of a misunderstood contemporary composer", the delightful theory about stage fright, the atmosphere in the artist's room, the the often depressing lives of "child prodigies" and "artist women" - in short, a panorama of an era, written with refreshing humor and spiced with many anecdotes.
