LITTLE NIGHT-MUSIC by Samuel Chotzinoff


Email this review


Samuel Chotzinoff, General Music Director of the National Broadcasting Company, is also an accomplished interviewer of musical personalities who often has associated personally as well as professionally with his subjects. Here are Heifetz, now teaching at the University of California, who thinks that ""to be an artist is like being entrusted with something precious for a brief time""; Menotti, who feels obligated to give to the world with the Spoleto Festival, which takes time from his composing; Richard Rodgers, who has accomplished with ease and all ""against the rules"", met even his collaborators Hart and Hammerstein not only by chance; Rubenstein, who really loves music and thinks that ""the true artist is always an optimist, because he is dealing with the soul of man""; Segovia, Spanish artist and gentleman, who ""discovered"" the guitar for the world instead of following his lawyer father's footsteps....Grace notes.
