The Lander affair which haunted the RBD from 1951 almost to this day will now be covered by Aschengrens new book Mester. I have not read the book yet, but press coverage show that Aschengren is in line with the old guard of critics in their view of Lander as the mistreated genius. Apperantly they place little relevance of the fact that leading dancers like Kronstam and Bruhn were anti-Lander.

The late great critic Henrik Lundgreen once stated, that when everything was said and done, Lander epitaph would be as the man who ruined the Bournonville legacy. Apperantly this is not the book that present this view. But you should not judge a book by its cover, so I will read it and return vith a review
