A propos du livre :
Critique: Gregor Tassie's new biography contains some anecdotes pertaining to Kondrashin's Bolshoi years (1943-56) that will be of interest to operaphiles...The volume contains a useful chronology and an admirably thorough...discography. Opera News [Kondrashin's] life is fleshed out and told in excellent fashion by this well-documented biographical study. ... The result is a study which commemorates a great conductor excellently. ...The Bibliography and Discography are fascinating and appear to be reliable. All in all, this is a book eminently worthy of its subject. Musical Opinion Gregor Tassie's meticulously detailed account of Kondrashin's career suggests an ambitious, talented musician who managed to carve a successful career with great skill and judgement in a political environment where just one false move could have easily led to disastrous consequences.
