‘Many have acknowledged the connections between Zen practice and musical practice, but none have done it quite so explicitly as Eric Schoones, with this treasure-chest of quotations from both Zen and musical writings. Shunryu Suzuki’s Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind has long been a favourite of mine, and to see quotations from this book linked so appropriately with the thoughts of so many great musicians – Busoni, Schnabel, Celibidache, Menuhin and Horowitz to name but a few – is a revelation. A must-read for all those interested in the mysteries of top quality music-making.’
MALCOLM SINGER, former Director of Music at the Yehudi Menuhin School of Music
