Glyndebourne: A Celebration. First Edition 1984 by John Higgins (Editor)
This richly entertaining book celebrates the 50th anniversary, in 1984, of the founding of Glyndebourne Festival Opera. It is a splendid mixture of historical survey, personal anecdote, criticism and comedy. Above all, emanating from every piece is a genuine affection for Glyndebourne and its founder John Christie, admiration for its style and musical standards, gratitude for opportunities given to artists, conductors, designers and audiences, for musical experiences and pleasure, and sheer delight - a recurring refrain of the book - in the atmosphere of the place.
Authors: Sir George Christie, Sir Peter Hall, John Cox, Raymond Leppard Sir John Pritechard, Sir Roy Strong, Desmond Shawe-Taylor, Isaiah Berlin, Asa Briggs, Bernard Haitink, John Julius Norwich, Gillian Widdicombe.
