Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lee's first-person narrative, based on many hours of taped interviews with her former student Elizabeth Nash, goes back even before she first sat down at a piano (at age 5), beginning with her grandfather, who fought in the Civil War and lived long enough to move to Washington, D.C., in the 1920s. Lee became a classical vocal coach who has worked with Paul Robeson, Kathleen Battle, Jessye Norman, and many other operatic giants. The memoir is a lively record of African-American classical musicians across the 20th century. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
