I am creating a list of music-related books that I've read, or plan to read. I will continue accumulating good reads, so please keep checking the blog!
Reading about pianists and composers is so inspiring - It's almost like getting to know them as a friend (well, almost). You can experience music as much more than practice each day. Reading about the composers, the musical periods, the music itself, and those astounding concert pianists (who are so interesting to learn about) will provide you with another world of music; a world that's rich in history and people and events and drama. It gets addictive.
