Summary: Born in 1904, Marietta Bitter lived most of her life in the musical, theatrical and literary circles of New York. Her mother was a singer, and her father was the sculptor Karl Bitter. She graduated from the Veltin School in New York City, a school run on classic lines by two French ladies who believed in such things as seven years of Latin, and who promoted the idea of French conversation among the students between classes. As a result, Miss Bitter spoke fluent French as well as German, which was the language spoken at home.She went to Bryn Mawr College for a year, but then decided to make music her career, an interest which began when her father gave her a harp on her eighth birthday. Her studies with Salzedo began in 1922, and thereafter, she was a part of the musical world in New York, especially that which dealt with contemporary ideas. She toured, gave recitals and taught privately, both in New York and in Los Angeles. She was often guest soloist with the Miami Symphony under its long time conductor John Bitter, her brother. Her husband was the actor Walter Abel. The Abels had two sons, Jonathan and Michael. Ms. Bitter died in 1979. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: Carlos Salzedo, (1885?1961), was one of the seminal harpists of the twentieth century. Born in France, he came to American in 1909 to play under Toscanini at the Metropolitan Opera. A man of prodigious talent, he went on to radically change the image of the instrument and its capabilities. His compositions for the harp have become standards of the repertoire. A renowned teacher, he started the harp department at the Curtis Institute of Music. His many students have gone on to principal positions in the leading American orchestras and to teach at conservatories, colleges and universities throughout the country. But Salzedo?s interests and influence went beyond the harp itself, as he was at the forefront of the post WW I contemporary music scene in New York City. This account, written by Salzedo?s student and colleague Marietta Bitter, recounts his remarkable life story. She gives us the fascinating details of his professional and personal life, as well as the kind of intimate detail only possible from a close friend who was herself an eye witness to many of the events she describes. An indispensable book for those interested in the history of the harp, it will also fascinate readers looking to expand their understanding of the development of our American classical music scene.
