Found this book as I was preparing to travel to Vienna. It reads easy though his moving back and forth in time is a bit tedious. But it acquainted me with classical music nicely. My second father by choice was a classical music aficionado and this book brought pleasant memories.

I am not as "well-read" in the music world as I would sometimes like to be.

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.

Inspiring to see a man so dedicated to his work and know exactly what the value of his work is in the larger scheme of things, in the middle of strife or leisure. The writing style is not appealing - often reads like a list of I conducted this this this - but if you can go through (skipping if you wish), wonderful to read of his dedication and love for his work, his team members (musicians) etc.
