“A spirited, systematic deconstruction of what is perhaps the single greatest classical music myth of our time. Baker’s engaged, first-person reporting and sophisticated theoretical framing of the uncovered evidence will tell you everything you always wanted to know about El Sistema, but were afraid to ask.” — Robert Fink, Professor of Musicology and Chair of the Music Industry Program, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music

“A frank, rigorous and considered examination… a fresh opportunity to think deeply about many of the provocative and urgent issues facing music education and music’s social roles.” — Professor Lucy Green, Institute of Education, University of London
