The Royal Conservatory of Music, founded in 1886, is rich in history and genius. Its long tradition of excellence in musical training and examining places it among the leading music schools of the world. Glenn Gould, Lois Marshall, Teresa Stratas, Jon Vickers, Mario Bernardi, and many other international artists have studied there. Amply illustrated, with over forty photographs dating back to the school's first years, this book is an unvarnished account of its controversial leaders, its successes and failures, its encounters with the musical and academic world, and its passions. In this smoothly paced narrative, your favourite musicians, teachers, and examiners will come to life to revive your memories.
Ezra Schabas has been associated with the Royal Conservatory for fifty years as principal and administrator. His books include the prize-winning biography of Sir Ernest MacMillan (1994) and (with Carl Morey) Opera Viva: A History of the Canadian Opera Company (2000).
