Instrumental by James Rhodes

This looks fascinating!  
Sad to see the words "This item cannot be delivered to the United States" but I have a friend in London that should be willing to help me out!

Re: Instrumental by James Rhodes

So I will post my first short "review" in here, too, where it belongs:

I like his way of writing, but he is brutally honest and uses also brutal words and descriptions. Which I also like, as it is no "bla bla". Sometimes I had to cry, sometimes I couldn't sleep.
But he also often writes in a quite humorous way, what kind of propitiates again.
So far it touches me deeply and I have to think a lot.... I have to force myself to think of something else sometimes.
I can't read more than one chapter at a time, so I'm not through, yet.

Re: Instrumental by James Rhodes

I just finished the book and I am very, very impressed. I laughed and cried while reading it, I got angry and shocked but for me the overall message is hope. Because in spite of all the terrible and brutal things, the fear and the suffering there is so much love and passion and enthusiasm which are simply infectious. I really love his way of talking about music and the music industry, the complete disrespect for everything deemed sacred, his contempt for any arrogant and elitist tendencies in the world of classical music. I am sure others will follow his example and make this sort of music love by and accessible to new audiences. I wish him all the best for his own label. I would love to hear more of musicians like him.

Re: Instrumental by James Rhodes

I have missed this thread:
I had the joy of going to hear James speak about the book, at the Edinburgh book festival last Summer.
He delivered a wonderful talk
I met him afterwards and shared some really personal stuff with him(well some of you know, about my daughter) and he was absolutely delightful.
What a lovely man and he was so sweet with me.
I have since read the book.
Though quite harrowing(obviously), it's painfully honest and beautiful.
It sits by me and I smile every time I look at it: the celeb I feel I genuinely made a real connection with.
Such a talent, too.
I look forward to seeing more of him on TV.

Re: Instrumental by James Rhodes

Thank you for sharing your experience. It must have been wonderful to meet him in person and I am still waiting for him to come to Germany for a concert. I love his way of talking about the music he plays and how he manages to show that the composers are not some long-dead giants but were people just like us (only a bit more talented).

Re: Instrumental by James Rhodes

Yes, I think he and Benedict are the two people I love hearing talking about their work the most.
They are both so intelligent and inspiring.
On a personal note: James has the most amazing eyes, when he speaks to you, it's like you are the only person in the world who matters!
