Turning the Pages: Recollections of An Autograph Collector/Page Turner at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw
Robert BrouwerISBN: 1871082803;
Book DescriptionThese recollections reveal the story of music aficionado Robert Brouwer, who never lost the love of music that was born when he landed a job as a small boy turning pages for some of the 20th century's finest musicians. Brouwer describes the remarkable autograph collection he gathered at the Concertgebouw in pre-World War II Amsterdam and the thrill of meeting and working with many of his musical heroes. As an adult, Brouwer continued to enjoy a full musical life, and he recounts his relationship with Willem Mengelberg, the conductor who made the Concertgebouw Orchestra great, and a night spent listening to Nigel Kennedy in a Kowloon night club.
