Notes & Reviews:
Alfred Brendel, one of the greatest pianists and musical thinkers of our age, takes us on a musical voyage of discovery going behind the notes to explore the mysteries of music. Presented specifically to be recorded audio-visually, these lectures were held in rooms of the Salzburg Festival. They are informative and entertaining not only for experts but also for all lovers of music with an interest in deepening their understanding of the subject.
... the first lecture presents a hostage to fortune because, my goodness, the Austrians take their classical music seriously. The event is inevitably a solemn affair, showing that Brendel has lost none of his native sense of humor...
I feel bad having to criticize Alfred Brendel, who is one of my favorite pianists, over the delivery of his lectures. His piano playing is wonderful, and the material he presents is interesting.
