Clive Brown
With a foreword by Sir Roger Norrington

Clarendon Press

  • From the Foreword by Sir Roger Norrington: 'This is the book we have been waiting for. ...Music-making must always involve guesses and inspirations, creative hunches and improvised strategies, above all, instinct and imagination. But if we don't have all the answers, the least we can do is to set out on our journey with the right questions. These questions and indeed many of the possible answers, Clive Brown gives in wonderful profusion. I cannot recommend this book too highly.'
