On the train from Cleveland to New York, Music Writer Barry Farrell sat back to enjoy a leisurely breakfast with a copy of Bruno Walter's book. Of Music and Music-Making. He had just turned to Chapter 3, titled "The Conductor," when a trainman passed by his table and peered over his shoulder.
Trainman: Are you planning to be a conductor? Farrell: No, I'm just writing about them for TIME.
Trainman: TIME! Is it going to be a big story? Farrell: Yes, a cover story.
Trainman: What's the name of the conductor who's going to be on the cover? Farrell: George Szell.
