An Incomplete History of The Art of Funerary Violin, Kriwaczek, Rohan
4 Kriwaczek, Rohan An Incomplete History of The Art of Funerary Violin
Melbourne Scribe 2007 1921215453 / 9781921215452 First Australian Very Good Octavo 
210 pp. Crease to lower back cover. Almost-invisible small stain to lower front margins of first 10 or so pages, not affecting the text. Otherwise clean, bright; solidly bound. Black-and-white illustrations in the text. Includes 'The Book of Scores, being a selection of the surviving scores so far discovered.' "A detailed, thought-provoking account of this forgotten musical genre. It is also a work of fiction. Rohan Kriwaczek claims to be England's leading authority on the history and practice of funerary violin, and it is difficult to dispute his credentials since the genre is entirely his invention. The Art of Funerary Violin is a work of imaginary scholarship, presented as nonfiction with nary a sly wink of warning to the unsuspecting reader. One is tempted to make comparisons with Jorge Luis Borges's early stories; one is further tempted to invent an author with whom to make comparisons. The latter would certainly be in keeping with the spirit of the thing." -- Tim Howard, The Sydney Morning Herald
