Harrison Birtwistle (1934- ) is one of the most eminent and acclaimed of contemporary British composers. This is the first book to provide a comprehensive view of his large and varied output, containing descriptions of every published work, and also a number of withdrawn and unpublished pieces. The book is structured around a number of broad themes--theater, song, time and texture--themes of significance to Birtwistle, but also to much other music. This approach avoids in-depth technical analysis, and Dr. Adlington focuses instead on the music's wider cultural significance.

Review:

"...excellently written...Literate, well informed, and wel organized (by general themes - theaters, roles, texts, times, sections, layers, audiences - and by individual works), This is a book bor advanced students, fans of he avant-garde, and fellow practitioners...recommended to very serious music libraries..." Choice

"Adlington's book is...an impressive debut. It is concentrated and well organized...Adlington is not afraid to go back to old-fashioned ideas of good practice, a willingness which I think does both him and his subject credit." Current Musicology

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Harrison Birtwistle has become the most eminent and acclaimed of contemporary British composers. This book provides a comprehensive view of his large and varied output. It contains descriptions of every published work, and also of a number of withdrawn and unpublished pieces. Revealing light is often cast on the more familiar pieces by considering these lesser-known areas of Birtwistle s oeuvre. The book is structured around a number of broad themes - themes of significance to Birtwistle, but also to much other music. These include theatre, song, time and texture. This approach emphasizes the music s multifarious ways of meaning; now that even the academic world no longer takes the merits of difficult contemporary music for granted, it is all the more important to assess what it represents beyond mere technical innovation. Adlington thus avoids in-depth technical analysis, focusing instead upon the music s wider cultural significance. Seller Inventory # APC9780521630825
