Product description

Review

"'Alfred Brendel... has the effect almost of transposing into language the greatness of the Beethoven, Schubert, Busoni, Liszt, etc. he plays' - Stephen Spender 'Alfred Brendel is not only one of the world's greatest pianists; he is a defining presence, who has changed the way we want to hear the major works of the piano repertory' - Susan Sontag 'Everything he writes demonstrates the acuteness of his intelligence as well as the depth of his sensibility' - Anthony Storr, Independent on Sunday '... a blending of the musical and human, historical and personal. It is what gives his writing, like his playing, its sense of excitement and commitment.' The Economist"

About the Author

Alfred Brendel was born in Wiesenberg in 1931, but has lived in London for many years. One of the world's greatest pianists, he is renowned for his interpretation of Schubert, Beethoven and the other great composers he plays, as well as for his writing on music. His book Music Sounded Out (included in this volume) won the Royal Philharmonic Society Charles Heidsieck Music Award 'For the special insights and musical wisdom which a performer of genius can bring to bear on the music which he has studied and played for so long...'
