OUT NOW | The-Late Robert Mann's Memoir – 'A Passionate Journey' [READ]

East End Press has announced the release of 'A Passionate Journey' -  the memoir of American violinist, the-late Mr Robert Mann

East End Press has this month announced the release of 'A Passionate Journey' - the memoir of American violinist, and founding member of The Juilliard String Quartet, the-late Mr Robert Mann.

The 352-page personal account is a comprehensive collection of Mr Mann's own essays, letters, lectures and interviews from various stages in his 97-year life - curated by his wife Lucy Rowan Mann, son Nicholas Mann and daughter Lisa Mann Marotta.

"A Passionate Journey, a Memoir by Robert Mann is the story of a young boy, born in Oregon, whose dreams of becoming a forest ranger evolved into a love affair with music ..." Lisa Mann Marotta has told The Violin Channel.

"As readers, we accompany my father as he becomes the founding first violinist of the Juilliard String Quartet and are ushered behind the scenes to witness the more intimate moments of quartet life ... and the controversies that sometimes surrounded the Juilliard String Quartet’s pioneering musical vision," she has said.

"Dad began to write chapters for his book back in the 1980s, in moments snatched from a life still bursting with music making, composing, and teaching ... he wrote amazing letters to his children while on tour, love poems to his wife and children’s concert and program notes ... writing a book seemed a natural extension of a life dedicated to dialogue - both musical and verbal."

"A Passionate Journey, a Memoir by Robert Mann gives us an intimate look at his remarkable life ... it is his love letter to us all," Lisa has said.
