Summary
Argues that conductors have been unjustifiably built up into mythic figures, looks at the careers of major conductors, from Hans von Bulow to Simon Rattle, and describes the agent who represents the majority of current conductors
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Examining the nature of the orchestra conductor, The Maestro Myth is a vigorous analysis of musical ambition and achievement. Acclaimed by critics, this refreshingly iconoclastic history of a profession which has all too often been the object of sycophantic reverence, is also a chronicle of individual endeavor and ambition.
