Offenbach: His Life & Times (eBook)

by (Author)

  • 54,670 Words
  • 170 Pages

This eBook version of musicologist Peter Gammond’s best-selling biography of the German-French composer Offenbach ties in with the 200th anniversary of his birth in June 2019. Composer, cellist and impresario of the romantic period, Offenbach is remembered for his nearly 100 operettas of the 1850s–1870s and his uncompleted opera The Tales of Hoffmann. Author Peter Gammond, himself 93, commented: "Nothing will shake my belief that Offenbach's music with its magical mixture of vivacity and tenderness is unique, unmistakable and undying.” The book includes a useful appendix which catalogues all Offenbach’s works, early productions and works planned but not completed at his death.
