1 Pitman, Walter. VICTOR FELDBRILL: CANADIAN CONDUCTOR EXTRAORDINAIRE.
Toronto Dundurn Press 2010 1554887682 / 9781554887682 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ 
430 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w and colour photographs. "(A)n account of the life and cultural contribution of one of Canada's most talented conductors. Born in 1924, he made his Toronto Symphony conducting debut at the age of eighteen. He went on to become the artistic director of the Winnipeg Symphony, a conductor with the Toronto Symphony, and a guest conductor of virtually every major symphony orchestra in Canada. Feldbrill was also the first conductor-in-residence at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music, from 1968 to 1982. However, what really set Feldbrill apart was his limitless enthusiasm and support of Canadian music and young musicians, as well as his insistence on playing the music of Canadian composers despite the reluctance of some orchestral managers and the initial opposition of audiences at the time. In doing so he reached out to young people and trained many to take their places as members of Canadian orchestras from coast to coast." Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling, minor rubbing. 
Price: 20.00 USD
