'A LIFE IN MUSIC, RUTH NYE AND THE ARRAU HERITAGE' by Roma Randles
Roma Randles gives an insightful account of the lives of both Australian concert pianist and eminent music educator, RUTH NYE, MBE, FRCM and the important heritage of the great Chilean maestro, CLAUDIO ARRAU. She discusses how their musical worlds overlapped professionally and personally for some thirty years. Several distinguished international musicians have also contributed to this work. Ruth Nye herself shares some information regarding her approach to the art of teaching professional pianists, and several highly acclaimed international artists have contributed to this work. The book also features many excellent historic photos.
The UNBROKEN musical heritage going right back from Ruth Nye, through Claudio Arrau, Franz Liszt, Martin Krause, Czerny and Beethoven to 18th c Joseph Haydn ... is indeed a unique and incredibly important heritage. Lingua Musica's 2013 tour, "IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF CLAUDO ARRAU" will be strongly associated with this book.
" A LIFE IN MUSIC: RUTH NYE AND THE ARRAU HERITAGE" was published by Grosvenor House Publishing, UK, and launched at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal College of Music in London in December 2012.
