Alfred Brendel on Music

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this definitive collection of a renowned pianist's writings—some of them never before published in English—Alfred Brendel brings the clarity and originality of expression that characterize his performances to the printed page. Whether discussing Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt, Schoenberg, or other pianists, his reflections will prove invaluable to serious piano players and listeners alike.

Book News Annotation:

Noted pianist Alfred Brendel brings the clarity and originality of expression that characterize his performance to the printed page. Some of the essays arose from questions for which the available literature did not provide satisfying answers, such as those pertaining to Schubert's piano sonatas, humor in music, the interaction of character and structure, or Beethoven's late style. Others present an overview of Brendel's own endeavors, or special topics such as coping with pianos. Most of the essays were previously published in Musical Thoughts and Afterthoughts (1960) and Music Sounded Out (1990).

About the Author

Alfred Brendel is known for his recordings, international concert appearances, and writings. He has been credited with almost single-handedly rescuing from oblivion the piano music of Schuberts last years. He was awarded an honorary knighthood in 1989.
