I am not as "well-read" in the music world as I would sometimes like to be. Before coming across Zubin Mehta: The Score of My Life, the autobiography of an apparently world-renowned conductor, while searching for a book whose title began with the letter "Z" (for one of my many reading challenges), I had never heard of Zubin Mehta. I have heard of many of his friends and the musicians and singers with whom he has worked, but not him.

In this book, Mehta tells us his story...from growing up in Indi
I hope to write a proper and unbiased view once the publisher has corrected the spelling of my grandfather's name on I believe page 35. George K-u-y-p-e-r, not "Kyper". Unfortunate that no one bothered to check; particularly when the book is full of dropped names, and that my grandfather was a primary figure in getting Master Mehta to the United States.
