“I am waiting impatiently for my copy. This looks to be a good book.”
Prof. Eric Somers, New York

“From the part of this book I was involved in, I know that John Palmer is a knowledgeable and insightful interviewer (as well as a highly talented composer of course) - I look forward very much to reading the rest as soon as possible.”
Richard Barrett

CE Books has just launched Conversations featuring twenty of the most influential and pioneering artists of recent times including John Cage, Jonathan Harvey, Evelyn Glennie and Michael Finnissy.  The conversations with CE Composers John Palmer develop organically, roaming between topics as far ranging as compositional technique, creativity and politics. Peppered with artistic vision, anecdote and biographical detail they stand as a unique record of how these artists regard their work and the world in which they live and work.
