The Inner Game of Music, the breakout hit that became a standard primer in the music world, has taught thousands of musicians—professionals and amateurs alike—how to overcome self-consciousness and stage fright and to recapture a youthful, almost effortless capacity to learn. Now, in his follow-up book, The Mastery of Music, Barry Green turns his expert hand to the artistic qualities that make an extraordinary musician. Culling advice from dozens of interviews with legends including Joshua Bell, Dave Brubeck, Jeffrey Kahane, Bobby McFerrin, Christopher Parkening, Doc Severinsen, Frederica von Stade, the Harlem Boys Choir, and the Turtle Island String Quartet, he reveals that it’s not enough to have a cerebral and emotional connection to the notes. Green hows how musical excellence, exhibited by true virtuosos, requires a mastery of ten unique qualities of the soul and the human spirit, such as confidence, passion, discipline, creativity, and relaxed concentration, and he discusses specific ways in which all musicians, composers, and conductors can take their skills to higher levels. He carefully incorporates all instruments and techniques in his rejuvenating discussions, inspiring the stifled student to have fun again and the over-rehearsed performer to rediscover the joy of passionate expression. Essential reading for every musician, The Mastery of Music strikes a beautiful new chord.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Diary of a Musician 11. Mai 2006
Von OpenMind - Veröffentlicht auf
Green has taken a diary kind of style to expose the inner workings of great musicians to the readers. It is fraught with quotations of great musicians he's interviewed and the "inside" details of soloists and orchestra musicians alike. However, although it's fascinating and funny at times, it lacks the public appeal that he might've intended it to have. He chose to expound on facts and details that he's familiar and au fait with but chose not to further research on topics or ideas he's covered that he probably knows not much about. Because of that, the tone of the book is very personal and you'd feel like reading his own diary in which he touches on his upbringing and personal experience and also musicians he has come to know very well. But when it mentions something that is outside of his own personal zone, you can tell it's inserted just for the sake of completeness. This book is recommended for musicians who have attained a certain level of maturity and are interested in knowing what other great musicians have to say and enjoy splashes of Green's personal view of the world of music.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow !! A MUST Read for the musician and non-musician alike 23. Juni 2003
Von "the_big_z" - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is fantastic!!!!
Regardless of if you were one of the millions to read The Inner Game of Music you should drop everything and pick up this book.
As a non-musician music lover, this book gave me a rare and interesting look about what inspires and motivates the greats of our time. It is just amazing to hear Dave Brubeck talk about creativity or what Joshua Bell thinks about as he plays the violin. This book lets you inside the minds of these greats and lets you catch a glance at their genius and then allows you to be inspired by their inspirations. This book not only lets you peak "behind the curtain" of the musical legends but takes you in to their living rooms, childhoods and thoughts !

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Amazing Book 13. August 2005
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a wonderful book that any reader would love. I'm 12 and I loved it. The author keeps you interested throughout the whole book and it's very educational. The way this book is laid out is really cool. He devotes one chapter to discipline, one to passion, one to fun, one to concentration, etc. and then in that chapter tells you how to acquire that trait in your playing.

As it says in the introduction, you'll find yourself highlighting paragraphs you liked or found interesting as you go along, and you'll find phrases like that on almost every page.

I really really loved this book and I think if you're interested in classical music you should definitely get this book.

A tremendous resource for both musicians and for those who want to understand what makes a musical artist 'great'. Well organized, clearly written, but never superficial or simplistic. Inspired me to purchase Green's other book, Inner Game of Music.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful read 9. November 2006
Von Kyle J. Parker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
With his popular "The Inner Game of Music" Barry Green had created a niche for himself on many a musician's book case, now he returns to explore what makes a musician using his vast array of friends in the field. Each concept he analyzes with a specific type of musician in mind and he brings in his contacts to speak from their point of view on the subject. For example the chapter that discusses the balance of ego and humility uses singers as the main focus of his exploration and story telling. The chapters can stand alone as their own concepts that you can zero in on or you can read through the whole book to take in the fuller picture of what the ingredients of musical artistry are, either way you won't be disappointed.

Some of the chapters could have been edited for length but overall I found myself engrossed in the many humorous and touching anecdotes. Sections of the book may be hard to comprehend without knowledge of musical vocabulary, but on the whole it should be accessible to anyone. While the "Mastery of Music" is a stand-alone piece Mr. Green does make references at points to his first book and it could be a good investment to go and pick up "The Inner Game" if you have the funds.
