Format: Paperback
Quotes about the composers, by the composers, about the nusic, about the inspiration for the music, about the instruments, and about performance... this book of quotes provides an alphabetical listing of topics which include composers themselves and many other subjects. William Shakespeare, George Bernard Shaw, and other famous non-musicians also figure prominently.... its is interesting to read quotes from the composers about a piece I am currnetly playing... gives a new viewpoint, that of the genius who created the music.... and there are a few criticisms too.... a great book for musicians and music-lovers!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a superb book listing many known as well as obscure quotations of, to, and about musicians. It is well indexed by both musicians and subjects. An example which is one of my favorites is by J. S. Bach, written as an Epigraph to the Little Organ Book (1717), where he wrote, "For the glory of the most high God alone, and for my neighbor to learn from." The book is replete with humor, proclamations, criticism, and praise of perhaps thousands of such pithy statements.
