The name of the book is Maitre; Canarina was one of Monteux's pupils. It's a fascinating read. Has anyone else read this bio?

Yes! Anything regarding Pierre Monteux is of great interest to me. My good friend pianist/conductor John Covelli, was a protégé of Monteux, who also knew Canarina. Covelli is mentioned in the book. I got that book when it was first released. As you say: a fascinating read and recommend to all who love great music makers.
