AN AMERICAN MUSICIAN'S STORY

The American background is the unusual feature in Madame Samaroff's career, for she was American born, -- in Texas of all places! -- married and separated from a Russian, became famous in her own right, and then she married Stokowski. Later she taught at Juillard and Curtis, organized the Schubert Memorial Fund, made records, traveled with her husband's orchestras, wrote and had a finger in many musical pies. Entertaining gossipy reading -- filled with anecdotes, personalities and matters of interest outside the world of music.
