Review

Brendel's own love for the piano is evident in every line. His enthusiasm will send amateurs back to their instruments to try things they might never have thought of on their own. (Ian Brunskill The Times)

Absorbing and often thought-provoking ... a guaranteed-to-please gift for musical friends. (Andrew Green Classical Music)

In turns scholarly, practical and skittish. (Alan Rusbridger New Statesman, Books of the Year)

An elegant stocking-filler - a quirky, insightful assemblage of observations and oddities. (Adam Lively Sunday Times Books of the Year)

Book Description

A Pianist's A-Z: A piano lover's reader by Alfred Brendel - one of the world's best-loved pianists - is a hugely insightful and enjoyable book for all piano lovers.

Format: Kindle Edition
A wonderful and wise book as one would expect. I don't say I agree with it all, but it is written with such authority that one cannot but savour and reflect on every thought. Perhaps the conceit an A to Z is a little forced at times, but no matter. More please.

I have been an admirer of Brendel for years both as a fantastic pianist and as a person. This is really just a booklet and though interesting it is a bit short on content.

A great pianists thoughts are often worthwhile. This book is worthwhile without being great. I'm a bit surprised, as Brendel has been such a towering figure in the profession.
