MEDIA REVIEWS
?Splendid?compelling.?
-- San Jose Mercury News
?Engrossing.?
-- Wall Street Journal
?Superb?a compendious tour through the past 100 years.?
-- San Francisco Chronicle
Music for a City is definitely a book for dipping into. We can excuse the sheer heft and size of the edition. Commuters may not be able to schlep it on BART, but it makes for a great read at home on a cold winter's night, and as a reference source, it is invaluable. The big book is also highly entertaining. There is something endearing evident on every glossy page. It seems Rothe is as much in love with the city and the San Francisco Symphony as the rest of us.
