KIRKUS REVIEW

Toscanini's success in last year's radio program has expanded the market for a book of this type. The eminent musical critic shows how much Toscanini brings to Brahms, Hayden, Beethoven, Schubert, Sibelius, Debussy, Wagner, etc., through analyzing the works and indicating where Toscanini gives them more beautiful presentation. An intelligent discussion of the masterpieces and his contribution. A book for musicians and interested layman, who wish to enhance their enjoyment of the music.
