Biographies and Personalities / Commercial Non-Fiction
In the 40s and 50s, Buenos Aires was a great musical center frequented by the brightest stars from around the world. In that Golden Age, three children studied piano together and became true legends of classical music: Bruno Gelber, Martha Argerich and Daniel Barenboim. A journalistic chronicle and an intimate biography drawn from texts, first-person accounts and interviews, En la edad de las promesas recreates the enthusiasm of a society that enjoyed music in the unforgettable gatherings at Buenos Aires halls, on the radio and in the inimitable seasons at the Teatro Colón. Cecilia Scalisi rigorously builds a portrait that immerses readers in this dazzling era and the lives of these three geniuses of Argentine culture.
