Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ unevenly faded with some shelf wear. Lower margins of boards faded. Text bright and tight.
Using Boulez’s career as a focal point, this book explores the entire generation of composers which followed Schoenberg, Stravinsky and Webern — from René Leibowitz, Olivier Messiaen and Karlheinz Stockhausen in Europe to Milton Babbitt, John Cage and their colleagues in the United States. It details the professional friendships and rivalries, the struggles for recognition and power, the politics of success and failure, in an absorbing study of Boulez, the man and the artist.
