Product Description

Review

Barenboim's book is at its best when he explains the unique status of music. He describes brilliantly how it works and the way in which its intricacies and logic justify his faith that everything is connected...It establishes him as the most pure-hearted and, therefore, anguished advocate of the lasting importance of art. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Politically and emtionally charged, this is a forceful volume. (James Urquhart FINANCIAL TIMES)

'He is as elegant at the word processor as he is on the podium.' (Nicholas Bagnall SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Book Description

A memoir by the master pianist, conductor and internationalist Daniel Barenboim - 'the closest thing that classical music can offer to Nelson Mandela' [THE TIMES]

Format: Paperback
This intellectually written book concisely expresses his deep anguish about the future of classical music and Israel, as sincere as his Beethoven.
The most interesting part, for me, was his encounter with Bible and Spinoza. With a lucky coincidence, when I got that chapter, I was just receiving a lecture on Spinoza. As a Non-European myself, Jews and Palestinian problem has been one of the most intricate and but unimaginably illogical situation.
This book will be an advocate for the further thought about the problem.

It also gives us an idea how he met and developed the sole friendship with Edward Said, the late Palestinian scholar. There are a couple of rather duplicated articles in the Part 11, Variations, but they convey vividly the feelings of at the time of events. Nonetheless, his passion in music and intention to connect his mind with us is strongly there.

Since I was at his conversation/ question time, through which his full of passion and ardent inner quest permeated towards auditorium well with occasional jokes, at the Royal Festival Hall in London and heard his recent Beethoven piano sonata concerts, I have been very curious to know his inside world. This book answered me well. -

An excellent book. But Barenboim lovers beware: the content is exactly the same as his 'other' book, "Music quickens time". Identical books, only different titles.

Format: Paperback
Daniel Barenboim is not only a 100 % musician, he is also an inspired writer who can write about and explain music in a very lucid way. He is a highly talented and inspiring artist who at the same time uses all his gifts to bridge the gap between Israeli and Palestininans.

This is an unforgettable book, that I shal regularly take out of my library and read again. In short: highly recomended!

Joost Tengbergen.

Daniel Barenboim is my musical reference, and the way he writes about inter-connection is extraordinary. A MUST for music lovers.

By MISS Mozschubert on 29 Jun. 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic, it explains so well the world of music and its very touching. People who gave a low rating simply don't understand the world of music and the concept of the book. Maestro Barenboim is a genius and not only you learn about music itself but a lot about humanity. I guess you need the sensitivity and intelligentsia to understand his thoughts and it seems some people don't get it at all.
