KIRKUS REVIEW

The market for this book should include that wide public that listens to Deems Taylor's admirable broadcasting commentary on the New York Philharmonic Orchestra during the winter months. The running comments on program are eliminated and the stimulating discussion of the composers and their works retained and expanded. It makes delightful reading and covers a wide range, including the classic masters and many of the moderns. In addition there are chapters on such subjects as How to Listen to Modern Music, the Conductor and the Orchestra, Stunting, Stunting, Child Prodigies, The Balanced Ration.
