“Michael Charry was the ‘sorcerer’s apprentice’ to celebrated 20th-century conductor George Szell. For the last decade of Szell’s tenure at the Cleveland Orchestra, Charry was an assistant conductor.

Now, Charry has captured the power of Szell’s artistry — as well as his tempestuous personality — in a new biography called George Szell: A Life of Music.”
