Book publication: “Expect the Unexpected!”

Kent Nagano’s book “Erwarten Sie Wunder!” (Expect the unexpected) will be published on 6 October by the Berlin Verlag. Based on his own biography, Kent Nagano discusses the importance and future of classical music: Classical music is in danger of disappearing from the everyday reality of the general public and becoming an antiquarianism of a social elite. Its loss would not only impoverish society from a cultural perspective, but would deprive it of inspiration, wit, emotional depth and a sense of community. Concerned about a change of values in the western societies, Kent Nagano makes a passionate plea for classical music. The book is being published in German, a publication in English and other languages is anticipated for the near future. Please click here for further information (in German).
