Robert Merfeld reads 'Is It So If You Think It's So?'


Date & Time: 
Sep 1 2017 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Internationally renowned musician Robert Merfeld discusses his new book "Is It So if You Think It's So?: Thoughts on Teaching and Performing Chamber Music, an Anti-Manual" at 6pm on Friday, Sept 1. 

Merfeld has toured the world as a concert pianist and has taught for many years at Harvard, Boston University and the Longy School of Music.

Richard Goode, a long-time participant and director of the Marlboro Music Festival and a world-renowned concert pianist, offered a high level of praise for Merfeld’s book. "...a refreshing, wide-ranging and imaginative book. Robbie Merfeld teaches chamber music as a humane art, one of personal interaction as well as musical discovery. I was delighted by the inventive and always pertinent analogies of nature, sports, and Hitchcock movies, among other things, and equally impressed by the soundness and subtlety of the musical thinking. This book is for all musicians, teachers and music lovers to learn from and enjoy.”

Former first violinist of the Guarneri Quartet, Arnold Steinhardt enjoyed Merfeld’s perspective on chamber music because, as he said the book is, “Peppered with gems of thoughtfulness, originality and wisdom.”
