Description or summary of the book: The exhilarating mix of humour, philosophy, fact and whimsy that marks these essays derives from more than 200 lectures Bruce Adolphe has given over more of the past decade, at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Centre and at music festivals around the States. The composer of four operas as well as chamber music, concertos and orchestral works, Adolphe has written for Itzhak Perlman, David Shifrin, the Beaux Arts Trio, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and many other renowned musicians. His essays, however divergent their apparent subjects, all serve a common purpose: to deepen our understanding of how music comes to be and how it may be enjoyed.
