About eight years ago in the Juilliard bookstore I stumbled across a book that was a collection of interviews with concert pianists - similar to those books by Dubal, Mach, and Noyle.

This one specifically featured an interview with Fou Ts'ong. I was reading it, had to run, but meant to come back and buy it. Alas I never saw it again, but always wanted to get ahold of it. Does anybody happen to know the title? No luck with online searches.

I found a book that is in German, and it is called Gespräche mit Pianisten. Band 2, 72 Interviews und Porträts. Fou Ts'ong is one of the chapters. If you speak German, perhaps that was it, or maybe you saw an English translation? I don't see a print English edition but if one is to be found, I wouldn't be surprised if it were once available in the Julliard bookstore.

Author is Carsten Dürer, and it was published in 2007.

Have you thought to call the bookstore and ask them?

Thank you, TwoSnowflakes!!

I looked up that book. It looks very interesting, but does not seem to have an english translation, and I seem to remember the one I saw being much older - from the 70's or so - but I'm not sure. I haven't called, but been back many times to the bookstore and nobody seems to know what I'm talking about!

$141.00 at Amazon.ca; $35.00 at Amazon.com and $32.00 at J.W.Pepper. Interesting!
