"[Liszt] gives practical tips, drawn from a well of experience sans pareil ... demonstrates how to project second-rate music (a Rubinstein concerto) ... [and] suggests ways of coping with the truly profound (in response to a student's performance of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations)." Times Literary Supplement "If one could go back in time and space, I feel sure most pianists ... would desire to go back to [Lizst's] time to study with this great personality--but we cannot. However, in this book you have it all." Keyboard Teacher "An unbelievable source of knowledge and thus indispensable ... Belongs with the most important [diaries] in the Liszt literature."
