"Throughout this memoir, Mehta shares an insider's view of the classical music world at its highest levels. He details his philosophy as a conductor and the challenges he has faced. He gives personal accounts of events such as the famous Three Tenors concerts and close friendships with such luminaries as Daniel Barenboim and Itzhak Perlman. Mehta also talks about his private life - about his marriages and children as well as his thoughts on politics. Special emphasis is given to his warm relationship with Israel and his efforts to use music to bring people together."--BOOK JACKET.
