Prince of Virtuosos

I am currently reading Charles Timbrell's Prince of Virtuosos, a wonderful biography of Walter Morse Rummel who was one of the greatest American pianists that no one has ever heard about. The book provides a fascinating portrait of an expatriate American musician who made the European musical world his playground but also reveals his close connections to Ezra Pound, Godowsky, Debussy and other fascinating characters--a totally captivating adventure.
