Books By Author Martin Jarvis
Written by Mrs Bach, Paperback (May 2011)
It's not often that one of the world's greatest composers is accused of plagiarising his wife's work, but an Australian musical expert has cast doubt on whether Johann Sebastian Bach wrote all his own material. Conductor Martin Jarvis believes Bach's cello suites were composed by the German musician's second wife, Anna Magdalena Bach (1701-60).
Broadway Jeeves?, Hardback (September 2003)
In 2001, Martin Jarvis played the eponymous role in the American production of Alan Ayckbourn and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Wodehouse adaptation, "By Jeeves". This is the diary he kept of that tour; a study of triumphs, failures and mindbending chaos.
