Edward Heath MUSIC A JOY FOR LIFE Signed First Edition

Edward Heath MUSIC A JOY FOR LIFE Signed First Edition

Average user rating

First edition, first print hardback of MUSIC A JOY FOR LIFE, by Edward Heath - Former British Prime Minister, a world-class yachtsman and a musician of near-professional standard. Published by Pavilion Books Limited, London, 1997. With full numberline 2 4 6 8 10 9 7 5 3 1. Includes crest and 'Sir Edward Heath' printed book plate signed by Edward Heath and stuck down on the front end paper together with a facsimile signed black & white photograph. Foreword by Yehudi Menuhin.

The book is in very good condition (Clean bright red cloth boards with gilt lettering on the spine) with only minor shelf wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

"'Stick to it! Once you've mastered it, your music will be a joy for life,' Sir Edward Heath's father used to say to him when as a child he got sick to death of practising scales and arpeggios. His father was absolutely right: from the age of nine to his work as a conductor of international renown, music has been Sir Edward's lifetime passion. Through this musical autobiography, he hopes to enable people to share some of that joy for life that music can uniquely bring.

Sir Edward records his musical experiences from his days as a chorister in his parish church to his career as a conductor which began in 1971 when, while Prime Minister, he conducted the London Symphony Orchestra playing Elgar's "Cockaigne" overture at its gala concert in the Royal Festival Hall - since when he has conducted many of the world's greatest orchestras on a variety of continents. He describes and explains music as an art; writes about famous composers, performers, and compositions; entertainingly describes what it is like to conduct an orchestra, and his travels as a conductor; shares his appreciation of music from years of listening and concert-going; and recalls the many personalities of the musical world whom he has met.

From his friendship with Herbert von Karajan and Leonard Bernstein to his great musical loves such as Beethoven and British music, from music at Downing Street to a series of five symphony concerts he conducted for his eightieth birthday celebrations, Sir Edward gives a fascinating personal insight into his wideranging experience. Written with knowledge and enthusiasm - and published to coincide with a Classic FM radio series by Sir Edward - Music will appeal both to those who already have a serous interest in music and also to those who would like to enjoy and understand but who as yet know little about it."

224 pages. Illustrated with black & white photographs.
