Jacques Barzun called this book splendid. Martin Gardner said it was beautifully written, marvelous and entertaining. It will provoke all serious readers to think in new ways about the grand patterns in art and life.
Lovely, wistful. . . . Rothstein is a wonderful guide to the architecture of musical space, its tensions and relations, its resonances and proportions. . . . His account of what is going on in the music is unfailingly felicitous.New Yorker
Provocative and exciting. . . . Rothstein writes this book as a foreign correspondent, sending dispatches from a remote and mysterious locale as a guide for the intellectually adventurous. The remarkable fact about his work is not that it is profound, as much of the writing is, but that it is so accessible.Christian Science Monitor
