Description - Carnegie Hall Treasures by Tim Page

In this stunning one-of-a-kind history of Carnegie Hall, Pulitzer Prize-winning music writer Tim Page tells the sweeping story of the world's most celebrated musical institution. Page's narrative illuminates Carnegie Hall's diverse lineage of superlative performers, from classical music legends such as Vladimir Horowitz and jazz greats such as Duke Ellington to contemporary stars such as opera legend Jessye Norman and singer Rufus Wainwright. It also recounts memorable appearances by the many notable actors, dancers, writers, and public figures to grace the famous New York City stage. More than 200 rare photographs-along with dozens of collectible facsimile items such as sheet music, album covers, programs, concert tickets, posters, letters, telegrams, and more, reproduced especially for this book and housed in bound-in envelopes-transport readers through 120 years of the renowned music hall's most memorable performances.
