B1413.(SCHWEITZER) CHARLES R. JOY. Music in the Life of Albert Schweitzer. New York, Harper, 1951. 300pp. Index; Photos; DJ.
“Those of use who know Schweitzer for his humanitarian, philosophical, and theological works tend to think of his musical work as something separate and less important. But to Schweitzer organ playing was a huge part of his life, and perhaps the most rewarding part. He not only played music, but studied it intensely. MUSIC IN THE LIFE OF ALBERT SCHWEITZER presents the written fruits of this study. It has excerpts from his well-known works on Bach, and also otherwise untranslated journal articles and pamphlets.”
