A Real Page Turner
Some of you may know that Tim Page is one of the leading writers about classical music (not to mention Glenn Gould and Dawn Powell) of our time, starting with The New York Times, then as a Pulitzer winner at the Washington Post before his recent move to Los Angeles and a top teaching gig there. And a good guy. So we are especially pleased to reveal that he has written a nice blurb for our new book: "A passionate, deeply felt and altogether personal account of coming to Beethoven in middle age, after a lifetime's immersion in other musical forms. They understand Beethoven's eternal wildness: As well as we may think we know this composer, he constantly surprises and reinvigorates us."
