9780907689096: Dallapiccola on Opera: Selected Writings: Volume One (Musicians on Music)

The Italian composer Luigi Dallapiccola (1904-75) always characterised himself as a `man of the theatre', and Il Prigioniero (The Prisoner) has been performed more often than any other Italian opera since Puccini. Dallapiccola on Opera, the first collection of his writings to appear in English, proves that he was also an inspired essayist and critic. To the directness and psychological insight of his narrative style, Dallapiccola adds probing observation of details in the critical texts that form the core of this book. Whether writing about familiar masterpieces like Mozart's Don Giovanni and Verdi's FalstaffI/>, Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov and Debussy's Pell130>as et M130>lisandeI/I, or discussing such great but problematic works as Monteverdi's Il Ritorno di Ulisse in patria, Busoni's Doktor Faust and Verdi's Simon Boccanegra, Dallapiccola illuminates fundamental, previously unnoticed dramatic and musical aspects.
