374 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "As a conductor, organist, pianist, composer, educator, writer, administrator, and musical statesman, Sir Ernest MacMillan stands as a towering figure in Canada's musical history. His role in the development of music in Canada from the beginning of (the 20th) century to 1970 was pivotal. He conducted the Toronto Symphony Orchestra for twenty-five years, and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir for fifteen. He was principal of the Toronto (now Royal) Conservatory of Music and dean of the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music. He founded both the Canadian Musc Centre, and was a founding member of the Canada Council. He was also the first president of the Composers, Authors and Publishers Association of Canada. Ezra Schabas provides not only the first detailed biography of MacMillan, but also a frank, richly detailed, and handsomely illustrated account of the Canadian music scene." Minor edge wear, one very tiny corner bump. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of rear flap-fold.
