Here's an excerpt of that review: "For their finale the two men played a medley from "Porgy and Bess." When they reached "I Love You, Porgy," I felt my eyes fill with tears. The lyrical beauty of Gershwin's melody, the resonance and purity of Mr. Ruff's French horn and the delicate, mystical quality of Mr. Mitchell's piano affected me in a way I was not prepared for. When they finished playing, I discovered that almost everyone present had been affected in the same way. The publishing official, who previously had spoken perfunctorily stood to thank the musicians but his voice broke and he said simply that he could not remember when he'd last been moved in this way. People were astonished not only that they had been deeply touched but that it had happened so quickly and in so unlikely and unpromising a place.
The one person who was not surprised was the author, Mr. Zinsser. Since he first met Messrs. Ruff and Mitchell at Yale in 1973, Mr. Zinsser has followed their careers and traveled with them on a number of their tours. Wherever he saw them play - for homefolks in Muscle Shoals, Ala., for employees at the John Deere headquarters outside Moline, Ill., or for a group of restrained, bewildered music students at the Shanghai Conservatory in China - Mr. Zinsser observed their uncanny ability to communicate with audiences."
If that doesn't make you want to read this book, I'll eat my pork pie hat.
