Originally published in 1926
This extremely rare book discusses the integration of music and color. From the book: “It is on record when Liszt was first appointed Kapellmeister at Weimer, his instructions puzzled all the players at rehearsals…’More pink here, if you please,’ referring to a particular passage, to his orchestra; or ‘that is too black,’; or, ‘I want it all azure here.’”
This book has never been reprinted and sells for $250-$400 in Europe. This book contains a bibliography of color articles, books and researchers from the 1800s along with charts, schematics and diagrams for constructing devices.
Chapters include Past and Present Proposals; Painting and Colour-Music; Psychology and Colour-Music; Music and Colour-Music; Instruments Past and Present and more.
