For the Love of Music presents 23 of the best interviews from Music magazine, ranging in subject from building a career to performance, and from sources of inspiration to music education.
Begun as an experiment in 1978 and co-edited by Ulla Colgrass and Anne Barrett, Music magazine included critical reviews and articles, as well as interviews which gave the artists a chance to speak for themselves. Shedding light on the musicians interviewed both as performers and as private personalities, Colgrass explores the creative process in order to understand the external forces that help produce a great performer. Including interviews with composer R. Murray Schafer at a distant wilderness lake in Ontario, with pianist Glenn Gould on the telephone, and with Elly Ameling over a hasty breakfast in a noisy hotel restaurant, the volume breaks down the traditional stereotype of the aloof musician by revealing their rich and deeply personal worlds and their passion for other art forms and pursuits. For the Love of Music also contains interviews with Jon Vickers, Pinchas Zukerman, James Campbell, Erich Leinsdorf, Wynton Marsalis, Edith Wiens, Teresa Stratas, Virgil Fox, Anton Kuerti, Richard Stoltzman, Victor Borge, Maureen Forrester, Christopher Keene, Istvan Anhalt, Robert Aitken, Yo-Yo Ma, Arthur Ozolins, Kyung Wha Chung, Rivka Golani, and the Orford String Quartet.
