KIRKUS REVIEW

Of rather more interest to musicians and students of music, these articles revamped from radio talks offer a many sided contribution to the understanding of this art... From definitions of kinds of music, their appeal, there is talk of various instruments, of ways and means in making music a career, of biographical sketching of composers and other types of musicians. There are answers to letters, autobiographical reminiscences, in telling of his own experiences as a composer, there is argument for old as well as new music...and the whole is branded with Taylor's own well turned phrasing.
