Alfred Brendel

11 Feb 2016

Legendary pianist Alfred Brendel is as eloquent with words as he is with music. In this talk based on his book A Pianist’s A to Z, illustrated by recorded excerpts, he conveys some of a thinking pianist’s concerns, collecting concepts and catchwords in the form of an A to Z drawn from 60 years of giving concerts, making records and writing about his profession. An unmissable talk for lovers of the piano, from one of our most celebrated performers. Hosted by Guardian critic and writer Tom Service.
