Elliot (editor) Forbes Thayer's Life of Beethoven

Red cloth hard-covers show light to moderate scuffing. Corners and edges of spines are very slightly worn. Corner of back cover has a white stain. Bindings are tight, pages are white and crisp! Paperboard box has scuffing, wear around the edges and corners, blistering to label (one side only). Black paper is slightly faded.

This book comes from the private collection of the legendary jazz clarinetist and Jazz Hall of Fame inductee, Kenny Davern. While Kenny was best known as a jazz musician who worked with everyone from Jack Teagarden to Steve Lacy, he attributes David Weber, principal solo clarinetist with the New York City Ballet Orchestra as his most influential teacher. He and I would listen to mostly classical music when we visited and discussed the differences in interpretations by various conductors. Kenny's knowledge of classical music was encyclopaedic, particularly of the work of conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler whose works lined the walls of his music room.
