Heard But Not Seen: A Memoir by Daniel Morganstern

My dear friend Daniel Morganstern, who recently retired as the principal cellist of the Chicago Lyric Opera, wrote a memoir about his 50-year career as experienced in large part from the principal cello "hot seat" of ballet and opera orchestras in New York and Chicago.

I proudly served as Danny's editor, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The 96-page book is honest, optimistic, and a lot of fun to read. You can order a copy here.

Got this book for an amateur cello friend and he writes:

"I am loving the Daniel Morganstern book. Many fascinating tidbits. One of my favorites: Robert Gardner, principal cellist with the New York City Opera for decades, played on an inexpensive "student" quality cello for much of his career."
