Rembert: A Play About Rembert, the "Stradivarius Wurlitzer," and The Mendelssohn Stradivarius Violin, with a Book Explaining Al (Paperback)
This book is intended to introduce the reader to a man who collected, authenticated, and sold an amazing number of Stradivari violins Rembert Wurlitzer. The play at the beginning of this book presents a story about what I think really happened around the time of Rembert's discovery of the real Red Violin. The play is in part a biography of an extraordinary man based on facts expanded upon by speculation. It is the first play I have ever written. In part, the book is a detective story attempting to identify the real red violin that became the basis for the movie The Red Violin and my play Rembert. The book gives a few interesting details about Wurlitzer family history.Mostly, the play and book are about a man who became totally infatuated and obsessed with rare violins.
