Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. As a record producer and administrator, Peter Andry has worked with many of the 20th century s greatest classical music artists and performers. Through his work with Decca, his years as president of EMI Classics, and his creation and direction of Warner Classics, he has collaborated with high-caliber artists such as Maria Callas, Yehudi Menuhin, and Herbert von Karajan. He associated with them in close quarters through times of work, play, stress, and relaxation. He has admired their talent, dedication, and charisma, as well as coped with their foibles, idiosyncrasies, and egos. In Inside the Recording Studio: Working with Callas, Rostropovich, Domingo, and the Classical Elite, Andry recounts his experiences with these exceptional talents, with whom he worked as a musician, a record producer, and a company executive. Andry presents intimate portraits of brilliant artists-such as Luciano Pavarotti, Joan Sutherland, Sir Thomas Beecham, Otto Klemperer, Sir Simon Rattle, Mstislav Rostropovich, Jacqueline du Pre, and Maxim Vengerov-juxtaposed with the dramatic changes occurring in the recording business during this time, a period that began with 78s and saw successively the advent of LPs, stereo sound, quadraphonic sound, audio cassettes, video, CDs, DVDs, and the growing importance of the internet. A foreword by Placido Domingo and more than 30 photos of the artists are included along with a discography of Andry s recordings with the three labels. These memoirs will be fascinating and exciting to anyone interested in the classical music and recording industries. N° de réf. du libraire AAW9780810860261

Critique: A volume in the line from the late John Culshaw's legendary Decca-related memoirs, this is an engaging stringing-together of tales from Peter Andry's distinguished decades as a producer...No one can fail to enjoy this. Classical Music, October 2008 There are wonderful stories, and you will get to know what went on behind the scenes when great recordings were being made. American Record Guide, May/June 2009 Inside the recording studio is remarkably honest... Highly recommend this title for any library which has a large collection of recordings. -- Richard LeSueur Notes: Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, March 2009 Engaging style... BBC Music Magazine, August 2008
