Written by Gerald Moore, a British professional pianist, who toured the European capitols for decades accompanying famous singers and violinists, and who also recorded extensively for Gramophone (Victor). This is an accompanist's bible: "it abounds in wise advice, lucidly and constructively given. In revealing the means by which such a professional may stand on his own feet as an artist, the author renders a real service to the individual and makes a definite contribution to musical literature."
