An Incomplete History of the Art of Funery Violin
Details: ISBN: 9781921215452 , Scribe Publications , 2007 . Book Condition: New. 210 pages. Multiple copies available this title. In this hilarious historical spoof, Rohan Kriwaczek uncovers the true history of an obscure musical tradition cruelly suppressed by centuries of hostile ignorance and Vatican persecution. From its origins in the Elizabethan Protestant Reformation, to its final extinction amidst the guns of the First World War, the art of Funerary Violin was characterised by many unique and frequently misunderstood qualities that set it apart from all other forms of music. 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 art of funerary violin was condemned as 'the music of the devil' and the Guild of Funerary Violinists driven into silence or clandestine activity. This is the music that, despite all attempts at suppression, has haunted Europe's collective unconscious for more than a century. Now Rohan Kriwaczek reveals its incredible history.
