I just recalled a book I read and loved in the 60s /Journey Towards 
Music, a Memoir /by Victor Gollancz.  Don't know how I'd feel about it 
now, but  Kirkus wrote "Gollancz's many years as a reporter, biographer, 
and critic of music and musicians give him a tremendous scope of 
anecdotes, and .."Virtually a whole education in the last century of 
opera performance, this makes happy reading for a musicologist at any 
level of expertise: it is intimate without being cloying."
