9780521673488: Essays on Music

Hans Keller (1919-1985) was one of the most brilliant and stimulating writers on music of his day, and this is the first large selection of his essays. His work draws on his rich and diverse experience as a string-player, composer, teacher, analyst and critic, and also reflects a deep interest in psychoanalysis. The first part of the book addresses psychological issues relating to critics, listeners, players and composers; the second analyses music by a wide range of composers from Haydn to the present day; and the third propounds his new theory of music, with essays on unity and contrast, motifs, themes, keys, timbre and rhythm. There is also a 'wordless functional analysis' of a Mozart piano sonata published here for the first time. The volume concludes with a magisterial account of what Keller deemed to be 'the principles of composition'.

Book Description:

Hans Keller (1919-1985), who lived and worked in London, was one of the most brilliant and stimulating writers on music of his day and the new theory of music which has emerged from his psychologically based music criticism has exerted considerable influence on a whole generation of composers and performers. This first large selection of his writing will appeal to professional and amateur musicians and all those listeners who remember the distinctive style of his broadcasts for the BBC.

Review:

'Brilliantly selected essays' BBC Music Magazine

'Christopher Wintle's outstandingly empathetic introduction that would seem best to encapsulate the style and ongoing purpose of this collection of musical (and I choose the word with care) writings as representative of 'Keller's crusade'.' Musical Times
