Inhaltsangabe: The author writes: "Among family mementos saved by my mother were more than fifty letters, most of them typewritten, crowded front and back on thin paper aerograms: letters I had sent to my parents during my third year as an Oberlin Conservatory of Music student, a year spent in Salzburg, Austria. Shortly after mother s death in 1984, I read a few of these missives, and thought, There might be a book here. In great detail - perhaps too great - the young Larry Palmer describes his reactions to a different world. He, having completed two years as an organ major at Oberlin, the private College in a tiny northern Ohio town, found himself in a small, but cosmopolitan, European cultural center in a German-speaking country, with relatively easy access to the rest of Europe. It had been only thirteen years since the end of World War II. Dwight D. Eisenhower was midway through his second term as President of the United States. The Russians and the Allies had agreed to the reunification and neutrality of Austria only three years earlier, in 1955, the same year in which the rebuilt Vienna State Opera resumed its brilliant performing schedule. The economy was stable. Twenty-five Austrian schillings equaled one American dollar. Even for a student, living was bountiful."
Über den Autor: During a nearly five-decade-long career Larry Palmer has conducted opera, church and university choral ensembles, and the Duke Ellington Orchestra; played organ and harpsichord with orchestras conducted by Bernhard Paumgartner, Eduard Schmieder, Louis Lane, David Davidson, Paul Phillips and Claus Peter Flor; and taught hundreds of students at Southern Methodist University, where he is Professor and Head of Organ and Harpsichord, Director of Graduate Studies in Music, and University Organist. He is principal guest harpsichordist with Texas Camerata, a period instrument ensemble, and has served as president of the Southeastern Historical Keyboard Society since 2004. As harpsichord editor of The Diapason (Chicago) since 1969 Palmer has contributed hundreds of articles and reviews. Additional publications include two books: Hugo Distler and his Church Music (1967) and Harpsichord in America: a 20th century Revival (1989/1993), as well as harpsichord and organ recordings. Concerts throughout the United States and several European countries frequently include commissioned new works from composers Herbert Howells, Stephen Dodgson, Vincent Persichetti, Gerald Near, Simon Sargon, Glenn Spring, and others.
