This review is from: The Show Must Go On: On Tour with the LSO in 1912 and 2012 (Hardcover)
Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from start to finish. I am a freelance musician, myself, and so much of this account rang true for me - the highs and lows of being on tour, and there were so many parallels between the present day and the past. Gareth Davies writes in a very approachable style, and gives a real insight into what it's like to be making real music with world-renowned conductors. Fascinating stuff. It is all so personal, too - you see the harder sides to orchestral life - separation from the family, illness and bereavement, written in an honest way. A non-musician would also find it a fascinating insight into the rather unorthodox life of a musician, I am sure. Well worth getting.
