1st Printing. 253 pages. Published in 1992. Concise critical biography on subject. One of the finest monographs ever written on Igor Stravinsky. About whom there are now innumerable studies. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Paul Griffiths' "Stravinsky". Magisterial. An acute musical analysis on its inexhaustible subject. "Provides the customary chronological narrative but organizes each chapter into two parts: A brief sketch of Stravinsky's activities during the period of his career under consideration, and then a description and analysis of that period's compositions. Griffiths makes stimulating connections among Stravinsky's oeuvre and groups the works to emphasize larger trends. For example, Chapter 25 ('Stories From The Bible') focuses on the major works of the composer's ninth decade, which draw from Biblical sources" (Library Journal). An absolute "must-have" title for Igor Stravinsky and Paul Griffiths collectors. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Most copies available online have major flaws or are remainder-marked, and are priced as such. A scarce copy thus. One of the most brilliant writers of our time on the greatest composer of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IGOR STRAVINSKY AND PAUL GRIFFITHS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0028714830.
