Description

This is a sociological study of musicians who play for musical shows, operas, ballets, and receptions. These are musicians who trained to be artists on stage, but ended up being accompanists in the pit. The focus of the study, which is aimed toward sociologists and musicians, is what life is like in the pit, the fascinating artistic conflicts of pit musicians, and the source of those conflicts. The book is written in a direct and readable style for the average music lover.
