Facing the Music: Charles Baeyertz and the Triad Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Triad was founded in 1893 and ran into the late 1920s. For its first twenty-two years it was published in New Zealand, but in 1915 publication was transferred to Sydney where it was re-launched as an Australasian magazine. The magazine offered well-informed coverage of cultural activities in New Zealand, Australia and internationally in a broad mix of critical and original writing. Notoriously outspoken, Baeyertz was feared and respected as a critic. His music criticism was particularly intelligent and rigorous, making no concessions to personality or amateur or professional status. His later co-editor, the self-styled "decadent" Frank Morton, was equally candid. This is an engaging biography of a fascinating man which also throws new light on a long-neglected period of New Zealand’s cultural past.

Book News Annotation:

A Dublin-born writer long based in New Zealand, Woods presents a biography of the publisher of The Triad; A Journal Devoted to Literature, Art, Science, and Music, which ran from 1893 to the late 1920s, then relocated from New Zealand to Sydney and became pan-antipodean. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
