Book Name:- Zubin Mehta: A Musical Journey
Author Name:- Bakhtiar K. Dadabhoy
Zubin Mehta’s life has been a series of firsts: he is the only musician ever to cumulatively direct two major orchestras in North America (Los Angeles and Montreal) and was featured on the cover on Time magazine when just thirty-one. As a virtuoso conductor, he has worked with and known the most famous artists of the last century. His extraordinary journey from Mumbai to some of the most prestigious podiums of the music world is a saga of genius and dedication.
While his musical legacy remains deeply rooted in Central Europe, his appeal is linked to Israel, New York, Florence, Los Angeles, Munich, and Valencia. Without any doubt the most enduring romance of the outspoken and flamboyant Mehta’s career has been with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra of which he has been music director since 1969.
Meticulously researched and engagingly written, this authorized biography offers an insightful window into the life of one of the twentieth century’s greatest conductors, one whose career has been marked by immense virtuosity, exceptional longevity and unquenchable passion.
