Violin Concerto (Schumann) - Subsequent History and Conflicting Opinions - Spirit Voices

Spirit Voices

Joachim deposited the manuscript of the concerto with the Prussian State Library in Berlin, and stated in his will (he died in 1907) that the work should be neither played nor published until 100 years after the composer's death, i.e. until 1956. However in March 1933, during a spiritualist séance in London attended by Joachim's two grand-nieces, the sister violinists Jelly d'Arányi and Adila Fachiri, a spirit-voice identifying himself as Robert Schumann requested Miss d'Aranyi to recover an unpublished work of his (of which she claimed to have no knowledge) and to perform it. In a second message, this time from the spirit of Joachim, they were directed to the Prussian State Library.

Famous quotes containing the words voices and/or spirit:

    To you, God the Singer, our voices we raise,
    to you Song Incarnate, we give all our praise,
    to you, Holy Spirit, our life and our breath,
    be glory for ever, through life and through death.
    Peter Davison (20th century)

    One swiftly forgets his intolerable writing, his mirthless, sedulous, repellent manner, in the face of the Athenian tragedy he instills into his seduced and soul-sick servant girls, his barbaric pirates of finances, his conquered and hamstrung supermen, his wives who sit and wait. He has, like Conrad, a sure talent for depicting the spirit in disintegration.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
