As a pianist and composer prodigy, young George Szell was said to be the new Mozart. As an adult, when he concentrated on conducting, he was likened to Toscanini. In any pantheon of great musicians of the mid-20th century, George Szell (1897-1970) figures prominently.
Mr. Charry says that he did not set out to be Szell's biographer, but when Mrs. Szell asked him to find one for her, nobody stepped forward.
