Summary
"Acclaimed cellist Ian Hampton (Jan to his colleagues) shares stories of years of performance and comraderie in his life in classical music. With charm, humour and a generous smattering of music history, Hampton takes readers into the cello section of the London Symphony Orchestra performing The Rites of Spring; to a basement party where Ian plays Schubert with Stradivarius-wielding cellist Jacqueline du Pré; to the stage of Wigmore Hall in London premiering the works of innovative Canadian composers with the Purcell String Quartet. Structured as if it were a concert, Jan in 35 pieces revolves around thirty-five compositions that have influenced the course of Ian's long career. It is an extravaganza of music history."--
