Description
Though functioning as a continuation of Howard Shanet's Philharmonic: A History of New York's Orchestra, which ended with the 1970–71 season, this book begins with a retrospective of the controversial last years of Dimitri Mitropoulos's directorship and the ascendancy of Leonard Bernstein to the post. The author, an assistant conductor during Bernstein's tenure and an inveterate Philharmonic watcher ever since, brings personal insights to the story as well as moments of humor. John Canarina shows how the New York Philharmonic weathered extraordinary ups and downs during this period, while remaining a vital component of New York's cultural life; a sub-theme of the book concerns the way the Philharmonic and its music directors have been treated by the New York press—the Times in particular—from Howard Taubman's attacks on Mitropoulos to Donal Henahan's on Zubin Mehta.
