Abstract:

"Dorothy DeLay is the first woman and the first American to have been accorded a place among history's great violin pedagogues. From Itzhak Perlman to Midori and Sarah Chang, the list of her pupils reads like a Who's Who of today's virtuoso performers. For more than half a century, she has been a power behind the throne, a legend within the world of classical music, whose influence extends far beyond the practice room." "Sand examines the childhoods of several DeLay students, taking an in-depth look at one of today's foremost stars, Sarah Chang. Woven through the stories are key issues in the care and training of exceptional young artists."

"Itzhak Perlman, Isaac Stern, and Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg are among the musicians who provide their very personal assessments of Delay as friend and teacher. Their insights, as well as those of DeLay's husband, New Yorker writer Edward Newhouse, paint a portrait of a woman whose motivating challenge is to find the approach that will lead to her charges' success."--Jacket.
