    The first few pages when he talks about Sartre the relation between time and music and how music is different than the other forms of art gives you so much to think about and you immediately know what to expect from the book I read it years ago then months ago then again a few days ago It is not a great book the narration is not consistent and it's hard to understand but it's a must read for everybody who loves music and the philosophy of it It just gives you so much to think about

    Mostly a good book I think the title is very misleading however as I don't think this book helped my musical imagination very much There were some uotable lines and good points but nothing ground breaking

    Interesting portrait of the mid century mind but little Shallow reflections freuently marred by language that strike the reader in 2020 as sexist racist and snobbish Copland was in fact uite sexist but not the rest so it took a little looking past the language to appreciate what he was saying in the sense he intended The best part was some light autobiography towards the end

    A clever writer gifted teacher and brilliant musician

    A good book regarding the authors influences and experiences of his life

  6. says:

    This is a personal book that comments on creativity and imagination in music but also contemporary musical history It is useful for both those new to classical music and experienced listeners
