Michael Steinberg recalls the beginning of a lifetime love
After writing three analytical books about classical music, Twin Cities critic Michael Steinberg takes a more personal approach in his latest book, "For the Love of Music." The book is a collection of essays by Steinberg and fellow classical music writer Larry Rothe about the powerful effect music has had on both their lives.
Steinberg's earlier books are listener's guides on "The Symphony," "The Concerto" and "Choral Masterworks." Steinberg is reading and signing Monday evening at the Barnes and Noble store at the Galleria in Edina.
In a conversation with Minnesota Public Radio's John Birge, Steinberg says his love affair with classical music began as a boy in England during World War II when he saw Walt Disney's "Fantasia."
