Louis Spohr (5 April 1784 – 22 October 1859), born Ludwig Spohr, was a German composer, violinist and conductor. Highly regarded during his lifetime, Spohr composed ten symphonies, ten operas, eighteen violin concerti, four clarinet concerti, four oratorios and various works for small ensemble, chamber music and art songs. Spohr was the inventor of both the violin chinrest and the orchestral rehearsal mark. His output occupies a pivotal position between Classicism and Romanticism, but fell into obscurity following his death, when his music was rarely heard

Louis Spohr (1784-1859) was one of the most popular musicians of the early Romantic period, but of his considerable output (including 10 symphonies, 15 violin concertos, nine operas and a large amount of chamber music), only the Octet op.32 and the Nonet op.31 are heard regularly today. Spohr established his name as a virtuoso violinist and completed his Violin method in 1831. As a conductor, he contributed to the increasing use of the baton to direct performances. He travelled widely in Europe, visiting London for the first time in 1820, when he directed a Philharmonic Society concert, and returning four times between 1843 and 1853. This autobiography, begun in 1847, gives a lively (but not necessarily always accurate) account of life as a professional musician. Spohr's own account ends at June 1838, and the book was completed by family members using materials provided by his wife.
  • Sturdy thick paperback. Very readable book, written (translated from original German) in a Victorian English style utilizing occasional archaic words and quaint usages, (e.g. "between whiles" for "meanwhile") that may have you occasionally consulting your OED. Chronicles not only the life of somewhat opinionated and moralistic violinist/composer Louis Spohr, but offers a first-hand depiction of the lifestyle of a European touring virtuoso of the early-mid 19th century. Spohr details his youthful love interests, and impressions of his fellow artists, offering priceless descriptions of many famous musicians of the time. A must-read for all those interested in not only 19th century music and musicians, but in 19th century Europe in general.

  • fascinating light onto an obscure subject. Very readable
