Weekly Music Nugget 22/ Hoffnung

     After my college senior recital my teacher presented me with a copy of  The Hoffnung Companion to Music, by Gerard Hoffnung.  It is a book of music cartoons and caricatures.  They are clever and funny.
     While searching for his cartoons online I discovered a site that discusses Hoffnung's life and his music books.  Although longer than my usual linked articles, it is worth reading.  Some of it is humorous, and a few of  his drawings are sprinkled throughout.  Enjoy!http://www.musicweb-international.com/hoffnung/biog1.htm
