    Dr Burrage has produced an exceptional book on Karl Muck and how he was targeted by misguided “patriotism” during WWI Beautifully written with impeccable research that leaves no stone unturned Burrage’s book establishes a new interpretation of WWI Boston and America while also delineating Muck’s place as a top conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra despite his own pitfalls This is book will become a cornerstone of the history of Muck and classical music in the WWI era of WWI Boston and of human rights It’s also a handsomely produced book and the scholarship will stand the test of time Kudos to Dr Burrage for producing a superior book

    Fascinating deep dive into an artist and a controversy I'd not known about The politics of the period have real resonances today and the level of research and understanding of Boston of the period is outstanding

    I found this to be a fascinating story Few people in present day Boston know much about the German heritage and lasting traditions from the pre WWI era This book provides so much detail it is incredibly well researched and cited and a great read
