Ivory Trade: Piano Competitions and the Business of Music

Joseph Horowitz, Author, Madeleine B. Stern, Author Northeastern University Press $16.95 (422p) ISBN 978-1-55553-117-1
Horowitz, who sat in on the 16-day 1989 Cliburn competition in Fort Worth, Tex., demonstrates that this annual talent showcase entices media coverage but does not necessarily help winning pianists or set the high standards once found in New York City's discontinued Leventritt Competition. PW called this, ``Lively, opinionated, controversial but fair.'' (Oct.)
