Review of The Late Starters Orchestra
In his inspiring new book, The Late Starters Orchestra, Ari L. Goldman is at once a memoirist, a historian, and a cellist.
Early in the first chapter, Heinrich Joachim (Mr. J), though already deceased, is introduced as Goldman’s cello teacher. Throughout the book, many of Mr. J’s lessons echo in Goldman’s mind and, as he chronicles them on the page, readers, too, become enlightened. And informed. And transformed. Mr. J’s posthumous voice is that of an experienced musician, an advisor, and a father figure. And, for Goldman, this is a journey of second chances. – Review by Kristina Moriconi
