Diese erste Lebensbeschreibung des deutschen Komponisten Engelbert Humperdinck stellt vor allem jene Verhaltnisse und Bedingungen dar, unter denen ein kompositorisches Werk am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts und in der Wende zum 20. entstand. Dem Verfasser steht dabei zu seiner eigenen Erinnerung an seinen Vater und zum umfangreichen Nachlass Engelbert Humperdincks noch ein bemerkenswertes Einfuhlungsvermogen in die Anschauungs- und Empfindungsweise der europaischen burgerlichen Kultur der Zeit vor dem ersten Weltkrieg zu Gebote. Aus diesem Zusammentreffen ausserer und innerer Moglichkeiten bekommt das Buch seine Farben und Akzente und erweitert sich von der Darstellung immer wieder zum eigenen kunstgeschichtlich-kultur-soziologischen Dokument.In seinen zahllosen Schilderungen von Momenten der grossen und kleinen Welt jener Zeit weist Wolfram Humperdinck bei der biographischen Darstellung seines Vaters dadurch auch auf die wesentlichen Stromungen der Epoche von 1870 bis 1918 und ihre Trager. Die Fulle von Begegnungen mit den bedeutenden Kopfen der Zeit fesseln und lohnen ebenso wie die vielfaltigen Wendungen des Lebensweges. Eine anschaulich gewahlte und treffend plazierte Bildfolge erganzt den Text, den ein Register auch fur wissenschaftliche Verwendung aufschliesst.
