Haruki Murakami's passion for music runs deep. Before turning his hand to writing, he ran a jazz club in Tokyo and the aesthetic and emotional power of music permeates every one of his much-loved books. Here, in 'Absolutely on Music', he fulfills a personal dream, sitting down with his friend, acclaimed conductor Seiji Ozawa, to talk about their shared interest. Transcribed from lengthy conversations about the nature of music and writing, they discuss everything from Brahms to Beethoven, from Leonard Bernstein to Glenn Gould, from record collecting to pop-up orchestras, and much more.
