Willem Mengelberg: The full story is out nowmain
The first volume of Frits Zwart’s comprehensive biography of the formative and controversial Dutch condcutor appeared in 1999.
The second volume, long awaited, covers his collaboration with the Nazi occupation during the second world war.
The new book was presented yesterday at the Concertgebouw, with a copy given to music director Daniele Gatti (who must be learning to read Dutch very fast indeed).
Who is going to be first to present a summary of its findings on Slipped Disc?
