    Delightfully written account of a fascinating life, a musician born in imperial Russia who went West, served as assistant to Serge Koussevitsky in Boston, was the agent for the premiere of Ives Three Places in New England, and appeared as guest pianist at a Frank Zappa concert happening Not your average Joe or Nick.
