Format: Audio CD
Someone remarked here, incorrectly, that Nietzsche was a "great pianist'. On the contrary, he was barely an amateur, and was entirely self- trained. My remarks here proceed from my own research and experience, to whit, my two recordings on the Newport Classics label of Nietzsche's piano and chamber music (whit tenor John Aler, violinist Nicholas Eanet and other friends and members of the Nietzsche Music Project) These were the first major survey of Nietzsche's musical works, and the first commercially produced recordings of his music ever made. They are not currently in print, though Sony Classical, which now owns them, plans to eventually re-release them.

As for another person's dismissive remark that Nietzsche could perhaps write "pleasant' music, I can only say that the gentleman is misinformed, as even a cursory examination of Nietzsche's compositions reveals, to speak nothing of a detailed analysis. Nietzsche's music is anything *but* pleasant, nor did making it a matter of easy listening even remotely confrom to his aesthetic ideal. He consistently demonstrates and conveys, in compositional categories, a genuine grasp of compositional conflict as a means of conveying substantive ideas; an appreciation of complexity, as a haunting work as forward-looking as "Der Junge Fischerin" so admirably proves; and above all, the music does nothing if not convey the inner conflicts and pain that defined him spiritually and intellectually.

Indeed, Nietzsche, though an amateur, could have become a great composer.

In reference to the review in which Nietzsche is praised as a "great pianist", he was not considered quite so. He may actually be called "flacid". Though I do not doubt his ability to write pleasant music, according to one writer, "Nietzsche's many gifts were not those that make great musicians or great composers." I myself have been quite curious of his musical endeavors since first encountering him in relation to Wagner. I look forward to hearing these recordings very soon. I shall leave with this quote from Brinton, "Music was to Nietzsche in after life a refuge when words failed him; and when words failed him he really had very little left."

Here you have it, the compositions of one of the most profound minds in history. I think they are invaluable, since the "overman", as thought by Nietzsche, is essentialy an "Artist". I does not have to do with intelligence, as B. Russell naively said, but with creative force. And this creative force shows itself profoundly in this record.
Most people doesn't know that until the age of 20, Nietzsche was hesitating between studying philology (and philosophy)or music. He was indeed a great pianist, and troughout his life he was always in aquaintance not only with philosophers, but with proffessional or amateur musicians (von Bulow, Wagner, Peter Gast, Jacob Burckhardt, his youth friends Willhelm Pinder and Gustav Krust, Rohde, etc).
His musical works, like his philosophical ones, must not be forgoten.
