'The Day I Almost Destroyed the Boston Symphony
and Other Stories'
read by KELLY FERJUTZ
The very best reminiscences come from people who have not only lived an interesting life, but have no hesitation in telling you all about it. If you're reading such a book of fond recollections, you can easily imagine sitting with the story-teller, as he or she recalls the incidents, and happily relays them as they happened. It's even better if the events sometimes back-fire on the person, casting them more in ignominy than glory.
I suspect the title of this book might be a bit more drastic than the actual happening, but it reflects well on the author that he is willing to assume all the responsibility for the said event which leads off this delightful book.
Cellist John Sant'Ambrogio is the 'middle' of a musical sandwich family...
