"An excellent piece of writing, exhibiting splendid communicative sensitivity and command of language, and fully representative of the remarkable mind of the author. . . . A book any musician, or any serious student or concertgoer, will find stimulating, provocative and instructive." -Robert C. Marsh, Chicago Sun-Times "Wise, detailed and valuable book. . . . Should become a set text for all performing artists."-Andrew Porter, The New Yorker "Throughout the book, Leinsdorf displays his knowledge and wisdom with a near total lack of pretense or vanity. This work would be considered one of the most significant books on conducting ever written, ranking in importance with those of Wagner and Weingartner. Its scope, however, suggests that it should be read not only by conductors but by ever practicing musician."-Robert Johnson, Music Library Association Notes
