|Alfred Brendel, speaker|
|Pages/Publication Date:||2 / 2009|
Retiring from a six-decade career as one of the world's most esteemed classical pianists, Alfred Brendel has returned to poetry, his other passion. Read in German in his rather soothing voice, Brendel delivers 61 of his poems here, including "Tritsch-Tratsch," "Sebald," "Wombats," "Liebe filtern," and "Brahms III."
"Brendel's poems are trapdoors into his dream-life, witty, Dadaesque and subversive—especially of his own grandeur as a musician."—A. Alvarez
