Product Description

Review

"Composers such as Gordon Jacob, Malcolm Arnold, Matyas Seiber, York Bowen, Humphrey Searle, Benjamin Britten, and Paul Hindemith are some of the list of Brain admirers, writing horn concertos and chamber music for him. Francis Poulenc wrote 'Elegie" in memory of Dennis Brain. . . . This biography is an absolute must-read for anyone who loves the french horn."--"Uijlenspieghel"

HASH(0xa4f4ab94) out of 5 stars A natural horn player Dec 14 2012
By Lewis T. Fitch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a pretty exhaustive look at the music that Dennis Brain was involoved with, including works written for him, the reviews they got, and who he played them with. A comprehensive view of the top performing musicians of the early 1950's. It has very little to say about his personal life. The technical details about his horns, mouthpieces and embochure were interesting.

HASH(0xa4f4af6c) out of 5 stars Dennis Brain: A Life in Music Oct. 18 2012
By Waldemir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An excellent read for any classical music aficionado. Substantial amount of research and material is different than the excellent Stephen Pettitt biography of Dennis Brain. I urge everyone who has enjoyed the Pettitt book to also purchase this book to amplify all known accounts of Mr. Brain's life.
