Product description

Review

Utterly engaging ... We are offered rare and privileged access to the composer's routine, his daily struggles with ideas, materials and himself ... Unputdownable. (Jonathan Cross)

'Anyone with the smallest interest in composition - not just concertos but novels, buildings, lives, you name it, should read this absorbing, spiky, dazzling book.' (Adam Thirlwell TLS, Books of the Year)

'Informative and entertaining ... Birtwistle's dry, brusque wit is found on every page, but this is a serious 80th-birthday tribute.' (Hugh Canning Sunday Times, Books of the Year)

'Full of affection and sharp insights by an author both knowledgeable about and in love with her subject.' (Stephen Walsh Spectator, Books of the Year)

'An illuminating study in which we learn how the wider threads of his life are woven into his music.'

(Richard Fairman Financial Times, Books of the Year)

Book Description

Harrison Birtwistle: Wild Tracks - A Conversation Diary with Fiona Maddocks is an exceptional and rare insight into one of the greatest living composers.
