While The Music Played

by Nathaniel Lande, While The Music Played Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download While The Music Played books, “We were the dreamers of dreams, the singers of songs. We were the music makers. We would not hear nor play nor love without each other. This is a prelude to our experience, an overture to who we were and how we arrived on the shores of friendship.” Beginning in 1939 prewar Prague, While the Music Played focuses on the story of young Max Mueller, a curious bright romantic—a budding musician, piano tuner, and nascent journalist. Max is on the cusp of adolescence when the Nazi influence invades Prague’s tolerant spirit with alarming speed as he struggles to understand the changing world around him. When his father, noted German conductor Viktor Mueller, is conscripted into the German army and finds himself increasingly promoting the Nazi message, Viktor’s best friend, noted Czech composer Hans Krása, protests the occupation in every way he can. As everyone Max loves is compromised by intolerable conditions, he becomes increasingly isolated, and is forced to find his own way. With each step, Max’s journey grows more conflicted. Music is the one constant connecting him to both the lost childhood he cherishes and the man he still hopes to become. But will it be enough to sustain him against the relentless Nazi threat? With a seamless blend of historical and fictional characters, told from multiple points of view, and sweeping across the capitals of Prague, London, and Berlin as World War II ravages Europe, this meticulously researched book is unique with its diverse and interweaving narratives, threaded with news accounts, and encompassing some of the most triumphant and devastating moments of the war—from the opera houses of Berlin to the music halls of London and the making of the famous children’s opera Brundibár. While the Music Played is a lyrical, absorbing, and heartbreaking story of love and courage from the widely revered and bestselling author Nathaniel Lande.

While The Music Played

by Glory Ralston, While The Music Played Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download While The Music Played books, When Jenna was just three years old, her mother drove out of her life without a backward glance, leaving Jenna in the care of her grandmother and her two aunts. Jenna has grown up in the company of these three woman in a rural area in the mountains east of Humboldt County, California. Her grandmother, known to everyone as Billy, has managed to keep her family together through many hard times. She is a strong matriarch, unwilling to compromise, and always in charge of what goes on in her home-no one ever contradicts her. Jenna's Aunt Louise suffers from a rare genetic disorder. She is loving and kind and anything but boring. She needs close supervision, especially when she is in the kitchen: she can't be trusted with knives or anything hot. Aunt Marge is the closest thing to a mother Jenna has had all of these years. Jenna's main job when she was not in school has been to assist her Aunt Marge-an unlicensed, mostly self-taught veterinary assistant-on her rounds tending to sick animals on the local ranches. Jenna values this part of her life more than anything else. In the summer of 1985, Jenna is seventeen years old and newly graduated from high school. She is to be the first of her family to attend college and will be leaving for the University of California at Berkeley in the fall. But she doesn't want to go. All she wants is to stay where she is and take over the care of the local animals when Aunt Marge no longer can. Making her life even more unsettled, Jenna receives a letter from her mother. To Jenna, both her mother and father might as well be dead. Her father went missing in Vietnam shortly after Jenna was born, and until this letter arrived, Jenna had not heard from her mother in almost fifteen years. Jenna has no idea if she wants to have any sort of relationship with the woman who abandoned her. While the Music Played is a compelling story about family and forgiveness. It is Jenna's story. It is also the story of her mother and her father and how the choices they made affected their family.

Each of the over 2,450 entries includes the title of the film exactly as it appears on the sheet music cover, studio, date of the film's release, main stars, the song title, composers and lyricists, publisher, and a brief description of the cover. Song and composer indexes are provided for further utility.
