MARIAN ANDERSON by Kosti Vehanen


Email this review


Not a full length biography but a highlighting of nine years of touring with the great Negro contralto, written by her Swedish accompanist. How they met in Berlin, where he was scouting for talent; his favorable report which launched her European career; her triumphal tour through Europe and South America and the United States. Full of her shounding personality, the people she met, her growth as person, her dignified handling of racial prejudice, her manner of working and preparing a program. A likable portrait, warmly sympathetic and admiring.
