Washington, DC Very interesting and enjoyable book Thank you, Kindle, for making it available Gottschalk wrote very well and his descriptions of the world of a travelling musical star in the 1860 s in North America were an eye opener, particularly against the backdrop of the American civil war, the social environment, etc The music of Gottschalk isn t terribly famous these days, but it is definitely worth listening to In his day, he was quite a celebrity as a performer and composer.


This book is an invaluable document Gottschalk was a concert pianist who was born in New Orleans, spent his boyhood in the Carribean, and went, while still a boy, to Paris to study piano He met there many noted musicians including Chopin These memoirs consist of notes he made as a touring pianist giving concerts and recitals throughout America, north of the Mason Dixon line, during the Civil War He made stops in numerous places, from Boston to St Louis, and then the west coast, down through central and South America He has colorful and impassioned things to say about travel, his accommodations, audiences, food, politics, religion, and many vivid and charming descriptions of places, events, and people Written in a lively and engaging style, I found it a great pleasure to read This books offers a unique view of its time from a man with a rare combination of American and European, Tropical and Northern and Southern perspective I read this on Kindle, and there are some errors due to automated transcription, like the word ears appearing as oars but they are comparatively few, and did not distract me from reading Well worth the time, and the very low price.
