The music of Igor Stravinsky has had a profound impact on the development of twentieth-century music. In this book, Jonathan Cross explores the technical and aesthetic legacy of Stravinsky in relation to a broad range of composers, from Varèse to Andriessen, from Messiaen to Birtwistle. He also proposes a reexamination of Stravinsky's own neoclassical music and Theodor Adorno's notorious critique of Stravinsky. This book is part history, part analysis, part aesthetics, and will be of value to anyone who takes an interest in the music of our time.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Pbk Version ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.It has become increasingly apparent in recent decades that Stravinsky s music has had far-reaching influence on the development of music in our century. Stravinsky s modernist innovations - evident in such features as his music s discontinuity, its stasis, its ritualized anti-narrative, its novel rhythmic and formal structures, its articulation of new kinds of musical time, and its reinterpretation of music and materials from the past - have helped shape much of the music of our time. This book represents a first substantial attempt to evaluate Stravinsky s technical and aesthetic legacy. In Part I ( The Stravinsky Legacy ), Jonathan Cross explores the breadth of Stravinsky s impact on the music of composers as diverse as Adams, Andriessen, Birtwistle, Boulez, Carter, Messiaen, Reich, Stockhausen, Tippett, Varese and Xenakis. In Part II ( Stravinsky Reheard ) he returns to Stravinsky s neoclassical music to examine how recent developments in composition and musicology affect our understanding of and analytical approaches to Stravinsky.
