Synopsis

This definitive collection of Alfred Brendel's writings combines his two classic books, Musical Thoughts and Afterthoughts (1972) and Music Sounded Out (1990), and also includes new, previously unpublished essays. Since the 1950s, Brendel has been one of the most prolific recording artists in the world. And here, in one volume of his best work, he 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.
