Author(s): Daniel Barenboim
'The power of music lies in is its ability to speak to all aspects of the human being-the animal, the emotional, the intellectual, and the spiritual. Music teaches us, in short, that everything is connected' Daniel Barenboim's new book vividly describes his lifelong pursuit of knowledge and understanding, not only of music and of life, but of one through the other.
'Barenboim's book is at its best when he explains the unique status of music. He describes brilliantly how it works and the way in which its intricacies and logic justify his faith that everything is connected...It establishes him as the most pure-hearted and, therefore, anguished advocate of the lasting importance of art.' SUNDAY TIMES 'Politically and emtionally charged, this is a forceful volume.' -- James Urquhart FINANCIAL TIMES 'He is as elegant at the word processor as he is on the podium.' -- Nicholas Bagnall SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
