Book Description Portland, Oregon; Amadeus Press, 1995. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. WHY BUY from book sellers who fail to accurately describe the ACTUAL condition of the book you're considering purchasing? THIS is a very good condition hard cover in a like, mylar-protected dust jacket. The spine is straight, binding tight, all corners are sharp, and is internally clean and NOT marked. NOT an ex-library copy. Dust jacket is complete and NOT price-clipped. QUOTED from the inside flap in relevant part: " The Messiaen Companion is the first major study to appear since Messiaen's death (in April 1992), and the first, therefore, to offer a complete survey of his extraordinary achievements. Intended as a comprehensive guide to Messiaen's music, the book also examines in detail the enduring inspiration which Messiaen derived from his religious faith and from his lifelong passion for ornithology and the natural world. The contributors, all of whom have made a special study of the composer, include two biographers of Messiaen and a number of the foremost interpreters of his music. Messiaen's influential teaching is recalled in essays by three of his pupils (Pierre Boulez, George Benjamin, and Peter Hill), and the composer is remembered also in a remarkable and moving contribution from his widow and devoted musical companion, the pianist Yvonne Loriod." First American Edition, with full number line present. 581 pages. Well illustrated throughout. SHIPS from Eugene, Oregon, USA. INTERNATIONAL orders may require additional postage, always at prevailing USPS rates. Location: case. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1487117058678
