Book Description Simon & Schuster, Kingsway, London, 2000. Softcover, 23 x 15cms This is the revised edition of 1992 original. This Companion contains entries on dozens of important composers who have never appeared in an English reference work. It assesses the merits of jazz and rock and their role in musical evolution. It examines the political environment in which music was created and concludes that it acquitted itself best of all the Arts in its response to Nazi and Soviet totalitarianism. It attacks with equal vigour the elitism that encouraged some composers to ignore audiences and the commercialism that prompted others to write for the lowest common denominator. Boulez and Lloyd Webber are given a rough ride; Martinu and Bernstein are rehabilitated; Palestine and Karamanov are rediscovered. Includes more than a dozen photographic portraits of contemporary composers by Betty Freeman. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers and barcode. Book in VERY GOOD condition 452 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 43835
