From the Publisher:

In their own words: With these personal reminiscences we hope to convey some of the same excitement, creative fervor, and joy all of these wonderful artists have stirred in us. Perhaps all is not complete beauty and consonant harmony, however. A few foibles, frailties, warts and wrinkles appear here and there in these remarkable personalities, as we are quite aware is also true of both of us. We have engaged in a duet, taking turns to tell our tales which, after more than 50 years of living music, seem to us like an unbelievably impossible, but beautiful dream. Don't awaken us!

From the Author:

Milton Katims, condutor-violist and Virginia P Katims, 'cellist reveal their experiences with Maestro Toscanini, Maitre Casals, pianists Rubenstein & Cliburn, violinists Heifetz & Stern, composer Stravinsky, cellists Piatigorsky & YoYo Ma, singers Price & Peters and many more of your favorites with wonderful photos.

In the book's Foreword, Isaac Stern writes, "There are very few musicians who have the eye and the ear, and the writing ability to comment with the kind of personal association, wisdom and humor that Virgina and Milton Katims have put into their book, The Pleasure was Ours..."
