Beyond Black And White


 

The definitive musical autobiography from internationally acclaimed Australian pianist Roger Woodward. This is the remarkable story of one of the world's leading musicians. In Beyond Black And White, the author documents a rich life's journey in this part memoir, part manifesto: from boyhood lessons at the piano in Miss Pope's lounge room, to working with the world's most celebrated musicians, conductors and orchestras in a career that spans more than fifty years in Europe, China, Japan and the Americas. As a brilliant young artist in the early sixties Roger Woodward left Sydney to pursue piano studies behind the Iron Curtain, in Poland, at the height of the Cold War. His experiences awakened a profound sense of social justice and a deep appreciation of the relationship between art and revolution that has informed a lifelong dedication to human rights. Praise for Roger Woodward 'a pianistic genius' - the Guardian 'fingers and nerves of steel' - the New Yorker 'one of the most consistently exciting and convincing interpreters of virtuoso avant-garde music' - Financial times 'unrivalled in this country' - Sydney Morning Herald 'Awesome' - the times
