About this Item

Folio. Original publisher's brown illustrated wrappers. [1] (title), [2] (commission, characters, and orchestration), [3] (named cast list), [4] (index), 5-146, [ii] (blank) pp. Wrappers very slightly worn; minor remnants of glue to upper joint. Small price label to title. First Edition. "[Argento's] harmony teacher, Nicolas Nabokov, urged him to focus on composition, and through this influence as well as contact with the Baltimore composer Hugo Weisgall, Argento's pronounced gift for vocal writing was furthered. While [his] vocal music is often described as eclectic, several characteristics recur as unifying hallmarks. The theme of self-discovery permeates his entire output. Further, Argento claims his compositional technique exists only in so far as it allows him to effectively communicate text and subtext, resulting in a uniquely intimate relationship between the text and his music." Virginia Saya and R. Daniel Hughes in Grove Music Online. Bookseller Inventory # 27306
