        You don't have to be an opera fan to appreciate this beautifully written memoir by world-famous tenor Andrea Bocelli. Born among the vineyards of Tuscany, Bocelli was still an infant when he developed glaucoma. Music filtering into his room soothed the unsettled child. By the age of twelve he was completely blind, but his passion for music brought light back into his life.5/5(1). The book reveals that unexpected concepts and ways of thinking emerge from looking at sound in relation to its antithesis, encompassing not just Western art traditions, but the relationship between music, silence, the human psyche and sociological trends - ultimately, providing deeper understanding of the elemental places both music and silence.

      Van Morrison jazzy chant-like rock song "Hymns to the Silence" on the CD of the same title describes the yearning of a person separated from his lover. In the emptiness and stillness of the night, he cries out, "When I'm away from you, I just have to sing, my hymns to the silence.". Friends tell me that Music of Silence is my most readable book; for this I am grateful to Sharon Lebell, as I am grateful to Kathleen Norris for her Introduction. Kathleen (the author of Cloister Walk) has done so much to make the rich heritage of monastic tradition available to people outside the monastic enclosure.

Music and Silence is a beautifully written, lyrical novel which explores music, silence and much, much more. Set in 17th Century Denmark, the stories of multiple characters intertwine and the tale of each is equally captivating. The description and sense of place is 4/5.

musicofsilenceYou know me. I love reading fiction. However, I chose to read Andrea Bocelli's autobiography, "The Music of Silence: A Memoir," out of curiosity for this man whose voice has the warmth of a cozy fire, resonance of a cello, and familiar tone of a father's words/5.

Join him and Rose Tremain to discuss Music and Silence at the Newsroom, 60 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3GA on Tuesday November The music of silence book. Doors open. Then, in a skillfully presented array of increasingly interlocking narratives (each keyed to a different character's consciousness), Tremain explores a considerable range of human responses to, and involvements with, the overt expressiveness of "music'' and the "silence'' that pervades hearts and minds given to introversion and secrecy.

"Music and Silence" tells a story that is both violent and tender, shocking and consoling. This is a bold, uncompromising, wildly original book which demonstrates that in the day-to-day business of living, as in a fairy tale, not everything is totally black, nor wholly white/5().

Music & Silence brought to life the most memorable characters. King Christian IV of Denmark is an absolute ruler who commands his orchestra to play from the cellar, yet he is almost a slave to his Consort, Kirsten, who has to be one of the most selfish, petty, vulgar, yet humorous characters I have ever met in fiction/5().

I did not find this a comfortable book, but I did find it compelling. Tremain has a genuine capacity to get into characters' heads, so sharing their worlds and thoughts with us. The award-winning Music & Silence is one of Tremain's most popular works.

Set in the court of Christian IV of Denmark during the 17th century, it is a beautiful and enduring tale of love, intrigue and betrayal. Part history, part imagination, Music & Silence lyrically evokes the rich tapestry of court life.

The contrast between music and ambient silence or sounds is powerful. Obviously there’s the John Cage example, but another interesting example is the re-scoring of the Japanese animated film “Castle In The Sky” for American audiences.
