Since his debut, Tim Page has established himself as one of our ì most original and perceptive music critics, and one of the very ì few to maintain a serious involvement with the music of our own ì time. Gathering many of Page's liveliest articles and interviews, ì Music from the Road introduces a remarkable critical sensibility ì to a wider audience while offering thought-provoking new ì perspectives on composers, performers, and trends that dominate ì the current scene.
Page covers a characteristically wide range of topics, from ì Irving Berlin's complex sweetness to Milton Babbitt's elegant ì ferocity, from Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg's wild-woman glamour to ì Mitsuko Uchida's infinitely articulated restraint, from Pavarotti ì at the Garden to Sweeney Todd in the opera house. Special ì highlights are two moving profiles of Leonard Bernstein, a ì revealing survey of musical prodigies, a trenchant discussion of ì opera fanatics, and Page's famous Piano Quarterly interview with ì Glenn Gould. Other interviews offer surprising insights into the ì thought and works of Babbitt, John Cage, and, in a remarkable ì joint interview, Philip Glass and Steve Reich.
Balancing an intimate knowledge of the music with an eternal ì capacity for being surprised, Page is an ideal guide to the new, ì the old, and the radically unexpected.
