9780198162841: Vaughan Williams's Ninth Symphony (Studies In Musical Genesis, Structure, and Interpretation)

This study, the first of its kind on a work of Vaughan Williams, traces the genesis of the composer's enigmatic final symphony as documented in the surviving manuscripts. The latter reveal an underlying program based on Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles, and chart the composer's struggle to find the technical means by which to realize his most complex spiritual vision.

Review:


"Alain Frogley's book is a landmark contribution to a steadily growing field of research into Vaughan Williams...[the book] is the result of more than fifteen years of meticulous and imaginative research that has come together to form an extended, highly organized study full of immense and telling detail. ...a most welcome addition to the literature."--Music and Letters


"[M]agisterial study...[R]igorous, nuanced, and ultimately enlightening."--Journal of Musicological Research


"This book is the result of an extended period of reflection, and represents a heroic labor of love and scholarship....He meditates brilliantly upon inner narrative of the symphony."--Journal of the RVW Society, February 2002

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Ever since its premiere just before the composer s death, Vaughan Williams s Ninth Symphony has divided critical opinion and remained something of an enigma. Yet the composer thought highly of the work, and went against his usual practice by preserving all the sketches. This study, the first of its kind on a work of Vaughan Williams, analyses the symphony and traces its genesis through hundreds of pages of sketches and drafts; it also offers a general introduction to the composer s working methods. The manuscripts show how the composer worked meticulously to create the complex expressive ambivalence of the finished work, transforming in the process simpler conceptions redolent of his earlier music. Most crucially, however, the sketches reveal an underlying programme, centred on the theme of innocent sacrifice and drawing on Hardy s Tess of the D Urbervilles, Stonehenge, and Salisbury Cathedral. Vaughan Williams s new musical path in the symphony, it emerges, was closely allied to the continui. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198162841
