The Best Music Books?
Last month I initiated a discussion about film books. Now I’m wondering about music books. Following the template of the question from last time:
Which are the most inspirational five books about music ever written?
Here are my four — sadly, the scope of music books I’ve read and really enjoyed is so limited I haven’t got five that I can think of — so I’m super thrilled to get recommendations from you:
Michael Nyman – Experimental Music: Cage and Beyond
Alex Ross – The Rest is Noise
Paul D. Miller, ed. – Sound Unbound
Jerry Hopkins and Danny Sugerman – No One Here Gets Out Alive
