2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lawrie Cherniack on December 12, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a great read! It consists of two books. The first is Haggin's own recollections of conversations with Toscanini and of rehearsals and performances during most of Toscanini's career. It is insightful. The second is Haggin's interviews with many musicians who played under Toscanini. It is quite moving and instructive. Together, they constitute a readable and enjoyable book about a very great conductor and ultimately a very humble man.

Format: Paperback
So much nonsense has been written about Toscanini that it is a pleasure to have this double book available. Haggin may occasionally have been worshipful about Toscanini (tho not always), but he was always honest. Beautifully written.
