Advice to Young Musicians by Steven Isserlis
Advice to Young Musicians by Steven Isserlis

Sunday 14 May 7.30 pm – ends approx 9pm

Steven Isserlis in conversation
In conjunction with Chipping Campden Literature Festival

Prior to Steven’s opening recital of the 2017 Music Festival, he will be with us this evening to discuss his new book.

Robert Schumann was far ahead of his time, not least in his attitude to children and young people; his ‘Advice for Young Musicians’, originally created to accompany his famous ‘Album for the Young’, remains as relevant today as when it was written. Steven Isserlis adds his own extensive commentary to Schumann’s words of wisdom. The advice is by turns practical, humorous, and profound, making this volume a must for all aspiring musicians of all ages and standards.

The book will be on sale this evening or you can order ahead of time from:

Steven will be signing copies of the book after the talk
