There should be more books like this; it reads conversationally, without sacrificing depth or insight, and allows the composer's sensibility sufficient space to come across. The back and forth, slightly Socratic nature of the dialogue provides a feeling of following the thread of an argument all the way through, which is difficult to do in a format like this.

One section ends like this: "That's how a composer thinks about the live performance, Tom. Not as an event, a social event, but as the revelation of a new world." It's refreshing to see a meaningful vision articulated so clearly, and this is a thoroughly enjoyable and absorbing book.
