A subtle portrait of one of the world"s great concert artists, this volume offers a vivid presentation of Arrau"s unique and intensely felt beliefs about music and piano technique. In addition to conversations with Arrau, the author has included discussions with four of Arrau"s renowned musical colleagues: Philip Lorenz, Daniel Barenboim, Garrick Ohlsson, and Sir Colin Davis. The result is an eminently readable portrait of a great artist, presented in an intimate, conversational format. "...a fascinating and valuable book."!New York Magazine. 21 photos.
