About the book:

In these pages Sir Georg Solti relives an unparalleled musical life: his musical studies in Budapest with Dohnányi, Kodály, and Bartók; his exile in Zurich during World War II; his work as music director of the Bavarian State Opera in postwar Munich and similar posts in Frankfurt and Londons Covent Garden; his brilliant direction of the Chicago Symphony (19691991); and his freelance conducting of the worlds greatest orchestras. By turns touching and amusing, his recollections of such luminaries as Strauss, Stravinsky, Toscanini, Walter, Furtwängler, Klemperer, Nilsson, and Domingo fill this memoir with musical pleasure.
