KIRKUS REVIEW

General essays into book -- for a limited market of musicians, primarily. These are ""thoughts of a musician who is eternally grateful for being one"" -- essentially music appreciation, as it is taught and played and criticized. He discusses its development in various cycles of culture, virtuosity, programs, the amateur and professional -- and the function of music as a second language to ""serve sentiment and the transcendental urge"".
