Utz: As Seen on BBC Between the Covers
About this deal
Since the early transformation of European music practice and theory in the cultural centers of Asia, Latin America, and Africa around 1900, it has become necessary for music history to be conceived globally – a challenge that musicology has hardly faced yet. Peccato che Chatwin non abbia mai saputo del ritorno "in circolazione" della collezione Meissen di Just, il tesoro che sembrava svanito nel nulla. E io capii, mentre Utz faceva ruotare la statuetta alla luce della candela, che lo avevo giudicato male; che anche lui stava danzando; che per lui il vero mondo era il mondo di quelle figurine, e che, paragonate a loro, la Gestapo, la polizia segreta e furfanti vari non erano che creature di latta.
In September 2019 the documentary film Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin, by Werner Herzog, was broadcast by the BBC.
Chatwin also edited a collection of his journalism, which was published as What Am I Doing Here (1989).
The interesting characters, beautiful language, observations on life and what you learn about human beings when they live together as a community, it’s all in this little book. The book was nominated for the Thomas Cook Travel Award, but Chatwin requested that it be withdrawn from consideration, saying the work was fictional.
Un'ultima annotazione va alla scrittura colta e raffinata di Chatwin: amo i libri che fanno conoscere nuovi mondi e insegnare nuove cose; amo ancor di più i libri che sanno stimolare il lettore ad affrontare nuove letture: La montagna incantata di Thomas Mann, La signora col cagnolino di Cechov, e ancora Zweig, Schnitzler, e per finire L'immoralista di André Gide: la mia piccola collezione dopo la lettura di questo romanzo. This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use. It was on this trip that Chatwin first encountered a nomadic tribe; their way of life intrigued him.
