Summary

The maestro in his own words-the first autobiography of one of the world’s most famous conductors. As he approaches seventy, Maestro Riccardo Muti tells the story of his life and his music. Muti rose to fame in the United States as music director and later conductor laureate of the Philadelphia Orchestra until 1992, and he remains a popular guest conductor with the New York Philharmonic as well as other top music venues, including Royal Academy of Music and the Salzburg Festival. Muti is known as an innovator, having broken the mold of the traditional Italian conductor hidden in the darkness of the orchestra pit. Muti perfected a never-before-heard expressive style in music that became his critically acclaimed signature and made “the sounds speak.” In this book, he retraces a spectacular career, reveals behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and explores music, enlightening us about key works and composers.
