Product Description

Review


"Ivan Raykoff knows everything there is to know about why concert pianists - from Franz Liszt to Glenn Gould and from Clara Schumann to Martha Argerich - can be so damned sexy. And like a performance by Rachmaninoff of, say, his own Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Dreams of Love by Raykoff is a brilliantly conceived and beautifully rendered arrangement of all that knowledge."--Kevin Kopelson, University of Iowa


"In Dreams of Love Ivan Raykoff gives us a poetics of the concert pianist as a cultural figure of desire. He weds a graceful command of cultural theory to colorful histories of pianists' "sound-bodies" and technologies parallel to the piano, and he opens us to a world of piano movies, songs, and novels almost too rich to comprehend."-- James Parakilas, Bates College


"Exhaustively documented... It can be strongly recommended as a study in popular culture and the history of technology as well as music history." --ClassicalNet


"A fascinating and engaging book from beginning to end." --CHOICE
