Janos Starker is universally acknowledged as one of the worlds great musicians. Known for a flawless technique paired with expressive playing and interpretation, the Hungarian-born cellist is arguably also the premier teacher of his instrument in our time. String players flock to his masterclasses from all over the world, and cellists compete vigorously to study under him at the Indiana University School of Music. More than the consummate musician, however, Starker is also a raconteur and writer, occasionally quirky and droll, always witty and with a pointed opinion to share.

The World of Music According to Starker is a colorful autobiography spanning the authors fascinating life. From his early musical education during World War II in Hungary, to his world tours, educational philosophy, and recording and pedagogical legacy, Starker takes the reader on a riveting, entertaining, and informative journey. Included in the book are several of Starkers short stories and commentaries on world events, academia, andof coursemusic that have appeared in newspapers, music periodicals, and trade magazines.

Also includes a bonus CD recording of Starkers last public recital, which is unavailable commercially and includes his only recording of the Strauss Sonata in F, Opus 6.
