Description
The relationship between composer Igor Stravinsky and conductor Robert Craft is legendary; it began in 1948, when Craft was invited to meet Stravinsky after some four years of correspondence. Then, in 1950, the young conductor sought instruction from Arnold Schoenberg in the performance of his music, and maintained a friendship with him that lasted until the composer's death a year later. Craft, who himself died in 2015 at the age of 92, offers this three-part memoir, sharing his personal observations of musical figures (Schoenberg, Stravinsky, and Anton Webern) and literary ones (Stéphane Mallarmé, James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, and W.H. Auden), as well as his travel diaries to Cambodia, Seville, and Italy.

"Craft proves again that he is not only compassionate and sometimes wickedly funny, but the most readable and intelligent living writer on music."—New Republic
