This review written by Walter Damrosch.
"Alice in Orchestralia" is but another "alice in Wonderland," for the author taakes us in delightful fashion into the heart of that most wondrous land of all-the land of music.
Alice is to be envied, for there is hardly anything about a modern symphony orchestra-its make-up, its functions, its manner of speaking that universal language of human emotions-that she does not learn theough the pages of this book. And it is all done in such a bequiling way that one might swear that it had been written by the whimsical and immortal author of the original "Alice in Wonderland."
I am glad that this work was written by an American, and am proud that he is also a member of my orchestra. I prophesy for this book a wide distribution wherever the English tongue is spoken and the love of music prevails.
