Editorial Reviews

Review

In addition to being an interesting, well-organized, and authoritative biography, this book is an excellent compendium of information about professional orchestral life in America during its "growth spurt" in the middle of the century. --Fine, American Record Guide, January/February 2007

In writing about her father, Anne Mischakoff Heiles strikes the perfect balance between biographical objectivity and, where appropriate, intimate familiarity. Hers is a wonderful book that is more than a biography about concertmaster Mischa Mischakoff. The story of her father's early life and studies in Russia is fascinating, but she also limns what is largely a musical history of the United States during the 20th century: its leading orchestras, important conductors, and major music festivals. --Jeffrey Solow, STRINGS, December 2006

About the Author

Anne Mischakoff Heiles has been on the faculties of Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, California State University at Fresno, and the University of the Pacific, teaching viola and music history. As a violist she has been a member of the Detroit Symphony, Chautauqua Symphony, and other orchestras, and a frequent substitute in the Chicago Symphony.
