“In my concerts I talk about the pieces I play, I tell the audience why I chose them, why they are important for me and the context in which they were written.” This is how James Rhodes describes his recitals in the Foreword of his book Instrumental. A Memoir of Madness, Medication and Music (more than 75,000 copies sold), a moving biographical account that speaks of child abuse, music and survival, with which he has obtained a huge and unexpected success all over the world. In addition to playing and contextualizing the pieces he plays, the British pianist also tells the story of his life on stage and how music has helped him overcome the multiple obstacles he has had to face along the way.
