  • Working under the guidance of Leo Black at the BBC was a seminal time in my musical development.

  • BBC Music thrived in the golden and now controversial era from 1959-72 when Sir William Glock was Controller, Radio 3 Leo Black's memoir is not just a well-placed insider's factual account of how the Masic Programmes Department was organized' at this time and after, but also an astute and witty study of key personalities such as Paul Hamburger, Hans Keller, Robert Simpson and Glock himself. It contains moving character sketches of composers, especially Luigi Dallapiccola, Roberto Gerhard and Hugh Wood, and vignettes of outstanding performers including Heather Harper, Elizabeth Harwood, Janet Baker, Margaret Price, Norma Burrowes, Walter Goehr, John Shirley Quirk, Michael Langdon, Robert Tear, Alfredo Campoli, Andre Tchaikovsky and others. It ends with a poignant autobiographical essay. For those who want to understand the history of the BBC in the post war years through the eyes of a sensitive and articulate musician, this is a key document, as readable as it is informative. --Book Jacket
