I found this to be engrossing, hence my speedy progress! These memoirs of Gerald Moore's career as accompanist clearly recall a long distant era, of whose musicians but a few are remembered perhaps. However, I found the recollection of events, characters encountered and lessons learned to be still pertinent and instructive. Good basic ability, a lifetime of hard work and readiness to try opportunities arising seem to have been consistent themes underlying his success. The irony of my discovering I found this to be engrossing, hence my speedy progress!

For anyone who accompanies vocal or instrumental soloists this book is a particular delight. I had read excerpts from it in 1962, but hadn't seen it since. It is even more entertaining than I remembered. Moore was a superb accompanist. Realizing that even the best must put up with difficult soloists and less than pristine pianos makes it easier to bear when a concert is not quite satisfactory through no fault of the keyboardist. Some of the humorous situations he found himself in, while not particularly fun at their happening, are hilarious in the retelling.

A fabulous read. Such modesty for a brilliant accompanist. Good research material and interesting insights into top shelf artists.

Thanks for fast delivery and honest representation of a quality product.

But still out there! What a wonderful, entertaining and informative book about a much slighted profession by one of the best. Glad I found it on Amazon.
