Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
This slim biography emphasizes Ozawa's triumphs as one of the first Asians to succeed in the field of western music. The conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1973, Ozawa has had a distinguished career that is ably chronicled in this volume in the "Contemporary Asian Americans" series.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5This easy-to-read biography offers a brief survey of the life of the famous maestro. Beginning with Ozawa winning the prestigious International Competition of Orchestra Conductors at the age of 24, Tan backtracks to discuss her subject's birth in China and traumatic childhood in Japan during World War II. The rest of the text enumerates some of the highlights and disappointments of the musician's stellar career. A good deal of attention is given to the cultural differences between Western and Japanese musical traditions and Ozawa's influence in bridging the gap. Similar in scope to Charnan Simon's Seiji Ozawa (Children's Press, 1992), this title is more up-to-date and covers the conductor's visit to Japan during the devastating 1995 earthquake in Kobe and the opening of a new concert hall named in his honor at the famed Tanglewood Music Festival. Some fictionalizing of Ozawa's thoughts and feelings detract from the text. When describing the first time the maestro conducted an American orchestra, the author writes that Ozawa "felt very proud" and "confident about his ability." These are not documented quotes from the musician. Still, this is a serviceable biography.Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA
