    "Yeo has delivered an excellently researched and beautifully crafted book. In its painstakingly detailed analysis of the practices of note-taking of the early Royal Society, Notebooks, English Virtuosi, and Early Modern Science is an important addition to recent work on paper technologies. Here is the evidence that the new sciences of the seventeenth century could not be made without paper. Using Virtuosi as the name of the series instead of the book accomplishes a couple of things. First, it sets the foundation for several more books under the same branding. That might sound obvious, but notice that I am not calling this “Virtuosi Book 1.” By using the term “a Virtuosi novel” I give myself some future flexibility.

    Virtuosi: a defense and a (sometimes erotic) celebration of great pianists User Review - Not Available - Book Verdict. Frustrated with conservative music critics' discounting of virtuosity and virtuosi, Mitchell, a piano aficionado and coeditor of The Penguin Book of Gay Short Stories, offers this highly subjective. The Virtuoso is a compelling read and like brothers Gayle and Dev, Val's love story is a good one. I will say that Val felt different to me in this book as I pictured him in his entirety to be a bit more playful (even given his circumstances in this book) but as always you won't be disappointed in his interaction with family and friends.

Why this book is out of print is beyond me. He does pretty much what he did with "The Virtuosi book Pianists", he provides articles on great virtuosi, their times, and the other artists of their day.
