Alfred Mann writes in the Foreword to this book: "During our time, a modern ideal of musical direction arose, personified above all in the figures of Robert Shaw and Helmuth Rilling. Rilling's work has borne fruit, which moved the cultivation of Bach's bequest into a decidedly new era. The reader who becomes aware of Helmuth Rilling's achievements through the account by his sympathetic biographer will be well rewarded." The author has divided the book into two sections: Part One outlines the biography of Helmuth Rilling, providing a source of information about the man and the history and development of the institutions he created. Part Two documents his fundamental teaching philosophy and serves as a guide for conductors. Rilling's advice on conducting, score preparation, interpretation, and rehearsal techniques is included.
