Music In and On the Air is a wonderful collection of radio pieces from Pulitzer Prize winning critic Lloyd Schwartz. The book explores contemporary classics, musical theatre and film, and includes almost all the reviews Schwartz has presented since becoming the classical music critic for NPR's Fresh Air. Offering up reflections on performers and composers, from Bolet to Horowitz, Cole Porter to Elvis Costello, Casals to Toscanini-Schwartz brings us closer to music in the air. Host Terry Gross said it best: "Lloyd is my favorite classical music critic and I've been privileged to present him on Fresh Air. That he writes so knowledgeably about movie musicals makes me love him even more. He's a poet, of course, and his gift for language makes him a pleasure to listen to as well as to read.
