KIRKUS REVIEW

Collection of the critical writings of Berlioz, Wagner, Schumann, Tschaikovsky and others, which should appeal to others interested in music. The material is drawn from letters, books, newspaper accounts, reminiscences, with much to attract the music lover. Verdicts of contemporaries, the equals and the masters, couched in no uncertain terms, and making, today, good reading. Much of the material has never appeared in English before, and the editor, music critic of the N.Y. Sun and author of The Metropolitan Opera has done an excellent job of selection and annotation.
