From the Publisher
Editors Note `The most successful writers on music have often been musicians-Robert Schumann in the 19th century, for example, and Susan Tomes in the 21st...' The Times||`As natural and compelling a communicator in words as she is in music.' BBC Music Magazine||`Susan Tomes's book Beyond the Notes offered a unique backstage glimpse at the world of classical chamber music. No other musician has pinned down its fugitive essence with such perceptive candour.' The Independent||`Tomes writes with the same crispness, elegance and clarity that she brings to her music-making, and I found myself completely enthralled by each thought-provoking entry.' Classic FM magazine||`The very precision and delicacy of the language she chooses takes us close to an appreciation of the particular state of mind that classical music is uniquely equipped to create.' Times Literary Supplement||`Professional musicians will sigh with recognition at page after page; readers...will have their eyes opened to the realities of the performer's life. I found the book absolutely enthralling.' Classical Music
