The Soloist

by Steve Lopez, The Soloist Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Soloist book, When Steve Lopez sees Nathaniel Ayers playing his heart out on a two-string violin on Los Angeles's skid row, he finds it impossible to walk away. More than thirty years ago, Ayers was a promising student at Julliard - ambitious, charming and hugely talented - until he gradually lost his ability to function, overcome by schizophrenia. When Lopez finds him, Ayers is homeless and paranoid, but glimmers of his earlier brilliance are still there. Over time, the two men form a bond, and Lopez imagines that he might be able to change Ayer's life. For each triumph, there is a crashing disappointment, yet neither man gives up. Their friendship will changes both of their lives in ways that neither could predict. Poignant and ultimately hopeful, The Soloist is a beautifully told story of devotion in the face of seemingly unbeatable challenges, and the inspiring power of music.

The Life Of Music In North India

by Daniel M. Neuman, The Life Of Music In North India Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Life Of Music In North India book, Daniel M. Neuman offers an account of North Indian Hindustani music culture and the changing social context of which it is part, as expressed in the thoughts and actions of its professional musicians. Drawing primarily from fieldwork performed in Delhi in 1969-71--from interviewing musicians, learning and performing on the Indian fiddle, and speaking with music connoisseurs--Neuman examines the cultural and social matrix in which Hindustani music is nurtured, listened and attended to, cultivated, and consumed in contemporary India. Through his interpretation of the impact that modern media, educational institutions, and public performances exert on the music and musicians, Neuman highlights the drama of a great musical tradition engaging a changing world, and presents the adaptive strategies its practitioners employ to practice their art. His work has gained the distinction of introducing a new approach to research on Indian music, and appears in this edition with a new preface by the author.

The Soloist

by Donald Gates, The Soloist Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Soloist book, He's a Finnish soldier, a warrior, who--since the invasion of his homeland in 1939--has personally slain scores of enemy troops while acting on his own behind Red Army lines. Now, in December of 1944, he is in Manhattan, sent by Nazi Germany to pave the way for an operation, which, if successful, will claim the lives of tens of thousands of American civilians. While Germany has an important strategic reason for launching the mission the battle-hardened Finn has been selected to carry out, he privately regards the assignment as a gift from the gods, a long yearned-for opportunity to punish the United States for what he sees as its ongoing support for Russian efforts to crush Finland and bring it under Soviet control. Now that he is in New York, he moves ahead with his personal plan. Using his skills as a solo operator, he adapts to a menacing environment, evades capture by the FBI, and ingeniously pursues his diabolical objective.
