Recommends it for: anyone curious about how wise and well-informed a piece of music can possibly be.
sshhh this is funny: i stole this book from a family friend who used to work with albert schweitzer in africa. schweitzer probably GAVE this woman the copy i stole. i'm sorry but she's going blind and she can't even read anymore anyway. it's um, a dense and rocky read, but full of informative gems you could never find anywhere else.
