  内容简介

  母亲死后,肯尼科特决心开始学习巴赫最伟大也最复杂的作品《哥德堡变奏曲》,希望从中探寻音乐的意义,乃至生命的意义。

  母亲一生郁郁寡欢,对待子女尖锐、刻薄甚至歇斯底里。然而在死亡降临之后,回顾她的一生,她是否曾被家人真正了解?

  练习《哥德堡变奏曲》的过程充满艰辛,它以超高的难度挑战演奏者的自信,同时在情感上让人不得不直面意识最深处、最私密、最孤独的自我。

  肯尼科特将他应对悲恸与练习乐曲的经历写成了这本《复调》,不断探索并试图回答两个至关重要的问题:

  怎样才算认识一首乐曲?怎样才算了解一个人?

Content introduction

After his mother's death, Kennicott decided to study Bach's greatest and most complex work, "Goldberg Variations," hoping to find the meaning of music, and even the meaning of life.

The mother was unhappy all her life and treated her children shrill, mean and even hysterical. But after death, looking back on her life, did she ever really get to know her family?

The process of practicing the Goldberg Variations is arduous, challenging the confidence of the player with extreme difficulty, while emotionally confronting the deepest, most private, most lonely self of consciousness.

Kennicott wrote Polyphony from his experiences coping with grief and practicing music, exploring and trying to answer two crucial questions:

What is it to know a piece of music? What is it to know a person?

Wonderful book review

The book is an in-depth look at how music permeates our lives and a heart-wrenching reflection on the trauma parents can inflict on their children.

-- The Wall Street Journal

Extremely moving... With beautiful prose and meticulous observations, Kennicott paints a nuanced and profound picture of love, loss, and humanity itself.

-- The Washington Post

"Polyphony" is a thought-provoking, highly successful memoir that meets the standard Kennicott has set: every good book, every great piece of music contains the hope of redemption.

-- NPR News Book Review

Kennicott turns a simple memoir into a shimmering, non-linear meditation.

-- The Boston Globe

The memoir is gentle, intelligent, uncompromising in its realism, but also honest... In short, it's a beautiful and unexpectedly uplifting book that lets you learn about Gould's Goldberg Variations and Chacon at the same time, and even see the world in a new and thoughtful way.

-- Gramophone magazine
