"As the audience rose in a standing ovation, the cast of LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR took bows & signaled appreciation to my husband, their orchestra conductor, Herbert Weiskopf. Then my partner of twenty-seven years did something I'd never seen him do before. He took a solo curtain call. Walking in front of the crimson curtain, he held both arms aloft in a gesture of personal victory, saluted the orchestra, & stepped backstage again. A day later he was dead." This biography is a tribute to a man of principle & stature in the music world who influenced many lives & careers. Living on "borrowed time" most of his life, he felt it was a privilege to give back as much as he could while he was still here. In Europe, Los Angeles, Seattle, & Portland he worked with great opera performers & musicians. Known as "the maestro" to his family as well as his colleagues, he encouraged & inspired many newcomers, many who later became well known.
