In the world of Paula Hollins, Abendmusik is ‘a method for making printed music lie flat on a stand’, and Abandonne is ‘What Pinkerton did to Buterfly’!
These whacky definitions come from her new sunny yellow covered publication, Musical Malaproptionary: A dictionary of musical terms redefined humorously. Aimed at ‘music lovers, screwball musicians, irreverent iconoclasts…. and anyone with a twisted sense of humor’ Hollins says “We need more laughter in our world”.
