KARL AAGE RASMUSSEN is a Danish composer and writer. He recently retired as professor of composition at the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus.
"Rasmussen's book is satisfyingly rich in illuminating details. And being a composer, he brings welcome musical expertise."-- "Bloomington Herald Times" "In this first-ever biography of Richter, Rasmussen paints a portrait not only of the famous Soviet pianist, but also of Russian, European, and American cultural life over the course of the 20th century . . . . The book is written in a readable, conversational tone that makes it accessible to a wide range of readers. . . . Recommended."-- "Choice" "This first biography of the legendary Russian musician (1915-1997) reveals the man behind the enigma. Many of Richter's colleagues are quoted and many of his less ingratiating quirks laid bare. Rasmussen dispels the myths without debunking Richter's greatness."-- "Financial Times" "The book demystifies one of the most mysterious figures of modern music-makers, right down to his practice methods."-- "The Well-Tempered Ear"
