The Honolulu Symphony: A Century of Music
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis volume traces the evolution of the Honolulu Symphony Society and Orchestra from its origins as a German beer drinking and music club founded in 1912 to the dynamic, multicultural symphony orchestra it is today. In this chronicle, readers will find a veritable "who's who" of Honolulu philanthropy known for supporting the orchestra both through their passion for European classical music and with their pocket-books. The Honolulu Symphony: A Century of Music shines a spotlight on the men and women who once made waves in the music scene but are now relegated to the footnotes of history: Princess Ululani Robertson, who became internationally famous for her role as Madame Butterfly; the Korean conductor Won Sik Lim, who at the age of twenty-eight, was the first Asian maestro to lead the Orchestra; and the influential Hungarian-born conductor George Barati, who brought the music of Stravinsky, Bartok, and Hindemith to Honolulu for the first time in the 1950s.
