Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is no more beloved musician in the classical world than Isaac Stern, revered not only as a great violinist but also as a generous personality and a crucial figure in the world of the arts. One of the few people who has known every major classical musician of the last two-thirds of the twentieth century, he shares his personal and artistic experiences in this warm, passionate account of his life: the story of his rise to eminence; his feelings about music and the violin; and his great friendships and collaborations with colleagues such as Leonard Bernstein and Pablo Casals. Stern the man, the musician, and the cultural institution come alive in the most readable and revealing musical autobiography of the decade.

Synopsis:

New in paperback: "His words have moved politicians and heads of state as eloquently as his fiddle playing has moved lovers of the violin."-Chicago Tribune

Synopsis:

Now in paperback comes one of the most readable and revealing musical autobiographies of the decade. Isaac Stern--the man, the musician, and the cultural institution--comes alive in this generous work as the violinist warmly shares his personal and artistic experiences. 43 photos.
