By André Gide,Bernard Frechtman

An inspiring discourse at the energy of song from one of many 20th century’s most crucial figures, André Gide


André Gide, one of many nice intellectuals of the 20th century and a loyal pianist, invitations readers to reevaluate Frédéric Chopin as a composer “betrayed . . . deeply, in detail, completely violated” through a song group that had essentially misinterpreted his paintings. As a profound admirer of Chopin’s “promenade of discoveries,” Gide intersperses musical notation during the textual content to light up his arguments, yet so much relocating is Gide’s personal poetic expression for the song he so loved.


This variation contains infrequent pages and fragments from Gide’s journals, which relate to Chopin and music.
