The great American pianist Sidney Foster—distinguished professor of piano at Indiana University, and the first Leventritt Award winner—is remembered here by a former student for his outstanding ability and generous character. This book includes commentary by numerous students, professionals in their own right; Mr. Foster's own words; and his own cadenza to the Third Beethoven Concerto for piano.

(Other compositions, including a song dedicated to Foster's wife, a piano duet with narration, and a twenty-minute CD of his playing, excerpted from unedited live performances, are available for purchase separately from the author.)
