From Library Journal:

Among the most radical composers of this century, Varese has probably had the smallest cult following, compared, say, with Cage, Ives, Schonberg, and the minimalists. As the author points out, Varese also has not directly influenced others. Yet his is a remarkably individual voice, as the works still extant (mostly from 1918 to 1936) attest. Bernard, a student and then colleague at Yale of Allen Forte, general editor of the "Composers of the Twentieth Century" series, shows an innovative approach in his analysis of several works, providing only as much biographical material as seems relevant. Along the way, much light is shed on other movements in the arts, particularly dodecaphony and neoclassicism. A major publication for scholars in 20th-century music.
