Genius is a fascinating thing. I love reading about people who “made it”. A well written autobiography is the ultimate. The problem with biological studies is that the person writing it often has a n unhealthy respect for the person he is writing about and may leave out critical detail. Above all it is often the biographers point of view and not the way the hero of the biography sees things.
I mentioned that I am reading the autobiography of Phillip Glass. He is an amazing musician and an amazing person with a fascinating life philosophy. To anyone not familiar eith his music, listen to this.
And some solo piano etude.
