Lillian Fuchs has been lauded as one of the first great American violists. Based upon biographical sources, contemporary newspaper accounts, and numerous conversations with her, this book draws together oral and written information to create a biographical portrait which also sheds light on the history of American music in the 20th century, when talented women had to struggle fiercely to survive in the face of male dominance.

I remember hearing Ms. Fuchs play the Vaughan-Williams' "Flos Campi" in a church in Minneapolis, when I was in High School. It had not been advertised well, and was not hugely attended, but it has remained for me, one of the transformative musical events of my life. To hear Lillian Fuchs play was like nothing else I have ever heard, and I wanted this book to 'fill me in' on the woman, as well as the violist. Sadly, all this book is, is in the vein of the old Applebaum 'The Way they Play' series; a chronological series of concerts, reviews, events, and not much more. Thank goodness there are some photos, but the work could have been much more interesting of slices of the artist's personal life- her children, her other interests, even correspondences, had been included in the revision/subsequent printing of this book, which I now possess. Perhaps Mr. Williams did not dare broach those subjects with his teacher, but the book would be far more interesting if had done so….

I will probably finish reading this at some point, but it's very dry reading. After getting half way through, I know the facts, but not very much about Lillian's personality. Contrast with "The Viola in My Life", which after getting half-way through, I felt like Bernie Zaslav was a guy I would have loved to chat with.

A reasonable length, very readable biography of one of the most talented and influential violists in history. If you play the viola, or share a house with someone who does, this book will fill you in on the life of someone who could be considered a matriarch of the field (along with Rebecca Clarke).

This was very informative and interesting book about the life and career of Lillian Fuchs, arguably the greatest violist/artist of all time. It gives a very good insight into her creative processes and character. Bravo Amadee!
